This is great information for all teachers or inspiring teachers. You need to be informed on everything the internet has to offer before you introduce technology to your students. This was very helpful!

I enjoyed listening to this segment. With thousands of tools that we can use with students choosing the best ones can be an incredibly daunting task–especially with how much the internet changes every day (as you discussed). Thank you!
