The majority of our students use technology daily to learn and share their voice, creativity, ideas, and passion with the world! When we integrate technology effectively into the curriculum students discover how to use technology to problem solve, create, and better their future and world. Before students embark on any digital project, you need to find the right tools. Below are some websites, blogs, and Twitter accounts where you can find ways to integrate technology effectively using free web tools and apps.
