#MTBoSBlaugust Weekend Edition Favorite Tech Tools

I had lunch with a dear colleague today.  She is part of a pilot program in our district integrating technology in math class (beyond the calculator).  We talked a bit about what tools to use and how it's OK to still use pencil/paper!

I thought I'd share a few of my favorite tools in this post.  I'm categorizing them but you understand that some tools cross over into multiple categories!

Formative Assessment

Google Forms
Socrative
Quizizz

Lesson Delivery

Desmos Activity Builder
ClassKick
Nearpod
Thinglink

Student Collaboration/Communication

Google Slides
Padlet
Kidblog

Teacher Productivity

Google Sites
CamScanner
Super Teacher Tools
Graphfree


There are many other tools ... Edmodo, Google Classroom, Kahoot, PearDeck, MentorMob, Symbaloo, and so on ... all great tools! It's important to settle into the tools that work for you and your students!

What's in your tech tool box?
