Weekly Tech Tip - August 28, 2013

For this week, I thought I would share a couple of new web sites I found over the summer. There are tons of new websites created everyday, so these are just a couple that I thought could help teachers and staff.
One of the apps reviewed on the graphite website!

1) - Graphite is a free service by Common Sense Media. It allows teachers to find apps, games, websites, and digital curriculum related to student learning. Check it out.

2) - While this site is in beta mode, it too offers teachers the ability to search learning resources related to specific curricular areas.

That's it for this week. If you have a tech tip that you would like for me to share, please let me know and I will be happy to share.

 Until next week,

This only works for google chrome.

Here is the page to get you started:
