Tools You Can Use In Your Classroom!

There are many tools available for teachers to use when planning your lessons. With the technology always growing, you, as a teacher, will want to include technology in the classroom. So, here are some tools that I have learned about that might help you create some really interesting lesson plans. There are four tools that I think every teacher should know about. There is inspiration, kidspiration, diigo and flickr. These four tools are collaboration tools. They help people work together, they have a common goal, they are used for different jobs, and they are very effective tools. Kidspiration and inspiration are easy ways for children to learn. As a teacher, you can create a lesson by using these tools and then you can have your students operate this tool themselves. They learn by doing this, and it is really quick and easy to make.

They are diigo and flickr. If you want to get a lot of information and you need to bookmark a lot of websites, diigo is the thing to use. It organizes all the websites that you bookmark and it is easy to gather your information fast. Then, flickr is a very nice website that you can use to find pictures that have the creative common use, so now you don't have to worry about plagerizing, because they have that all on this website already. These tools are very helpful and if you visit the websites, you can learn a lot more about them.
