Tech Tool Tourney from Mindshift

It’s impossible to ignore “March Madness,” and the education world has learned to embrace it by creating all kinds of academic bracket competition ideas like this one from the New York Times Learning Network for using with classroom debates. MindShift has a tourney for teachers, not students, though.  They want teachers to choose their favorite tech tools.  The great thing about this is that, by just visiting the page, you may learn about a tech tool you’ve never used before.  I consider myself fairly savvy on what’s out there for teachers, but I saw at least 6 tech tools in the first round that were completely brand new to me.  Even if you aren’t interested in determining the outcome of the tournament, you should definitely visit this page to discover some less-traditional ways technology can be integrated into your classroom.
