Teach Yourself about Technology

If you're interested in technology, there is no end to the amazing tools available online for educators. The problem lies in spending the time necessary to find and learn about all this great software. That's why you're reading this, right?

Sharing ideas is as the heart of the Springfield Township High School Library Guide, which is packed with information about many different kinds of tools available online for the teacher who wants to integrate technology into his or her class. From video editing to QR codes, this is an amazing resource to find out about something you've heard of (maybe you want to know more about augmented reality, with the release of the new Nintendo 3DS).

The great thing about this site is that it is packed with resources and information that is directly applicable in the classroom. The information is mostly presented in video format (with a few exceptions), making it accessible to you and your students, regardless of reading level.

I have added this to my list of websites to check out regularly. They've set up a few different RSS feeds to help you keep up to date on the latest page and guide updates.

Happy viewing!
