Tech It Up Tuesday: 25 Favourite Googly Things


Tech It Up TuesdaySo here it goes: My latest geeky girl adventure—a weekly series entitled “Tech It Up Tuesday” in which I will share an edtech tool, app, site or other resource that can be utilized in the educational setting.

OK, I get it. The blog series concept isn’t necessarily a new one—especially considering I already post two ongoing articles each week: Diigo Bookmarks on Sundays and tech related comics via Edu-fun Friday. But I thought it was time to “Tech the Plunge” with another regular post and with that, generate my first-ever corresponding hashtag. Isn’t it amazing what one can envision—and accomplish—during a snow day!

Well, here it is—my first official Tuesday “tech-isode”. Game on…

To get things rolling, I found a super cool interactive image created by Sylvia Duckworth—a sketch note that was initially generated using the FlipInk app and then smashed with one of my all-time favorite tools—ThingLink. The result: One amazing resource that provides 25 reasons why educators can and should love, love, love Google. Check out this must-see masterpiece shown below.

Be sure to hover over the image to reveal the “hotspots” located within the graphic. Warning Label: Side effects may include becoming uncontrollably “Googly” over the plethora of tools that can used to tech out your classroom.

Classroom Connection:

As a self-proclaimed Google Girl, I must admit that I wasn’t even aware of some of these edtech gems. In any event, identify the tool(s) that will enhance your lessons and engage your students, then let the Google goodness begin! There’s surely something for every classroom included in this comprehensive resource.

And so there you have it—my first-ever “Tech It Up Tuesday” blog post—25 resources in one. How am I ever going to beat that!

A shout out to Sylvia Duckworth for creating this very useful and beyond cool infographic—and for giving me the thumbs up to feature it on my blog!

Oh, and BTW: That brand-new hashtag I referenced earlier is #techituptues. Be sure to follow it on Twitter!

Tech-knowledge-y Rocks… Just sayin’! ;-}
