Testing Out New Tech Tools

It’s always fun to try out new tech tools and there are certainly a growing number of them in the education arena. This piece offers summaries of 12 tech tools–some new, some tried-and-true–that you may want to consider this semester. With so many options out there, though, it can be challenging to find, evaluate and make decisions about adoption. How could you improve this process in your district?

The options here, along with other recommendations from teachers and staff, could serve as a foundation for a makerspace type event.
