Web Tools for Teachers

Looking for the perfect web 2.0 tool to use for yourself or your classroom? You might want to check out this fabulous LiveBinder from Tim Wilhelmus: Web Tools for Teachers by Type. It has everything you might need, from photo, video, and audio editing to research, polling, and presentation tools. I especially appreciate how Tim has taken the time to include the perfect picture for each tab (although the picture on the avatar creation tab kinda sorta gives me the heebie jeebies).

Check it out for yourself and then pass it along to the teachers you work with!

Special thanks to Kyle Pace for sharing this link on Twitter.
