Wow! With so many tech tools out there now-a-days I get easily overwhelmed. The who, what, when, where, why (and how)? All the tried and true questions that get quick answers, that’s what I needed to ask when reviewing 2016’s top 200 tools for learning. In which ways can these tools assist in the educational equation? This week I teamed up with 4 fellow classmates to evaluate a portion of the top 200 list. We decided to each pick a tool of our choice and agreed on the criteria to present.
The collaboration process was a chance for me to utilize team skills that I really hadn’t used in quite some time. I found myself not “sitting back” as much I thought I would have but instead, having a voice conducive of a leader. I really surprised myself. Perhaps it was the fact that I was a “few” years older and more vocal about my opinions. Maybe I was selfishly thinking about the project and what grade I would get. Nonetheless, I learned about tech tools that I had never heard of before. I got to create my very first Google Slide and Google Form too! I really had a good time learning new applications and it wasn’t as difficult as I had built it up to be.
