Well, my tool belt looked a lot emptier than this before taking this class! I am so glad to say that I have been able to add so many amazing and useful tools into the pockets of my belt – ones that I will one day take into my classroom! Two of my favourite programs that I have been recently introduced to are:

Padlet: This is a program where you can create a wall displaying essentially anything you want! You can make it into a timeline, a planner, a place to showcase your learning, or to simply display your favourite things.

UJAM: I loved this site so much! I am a very musical person so it really resonated with me 🙂 I love to sing and play instruments such as piano and guitar. This is a program where you can create music, videos and remixes of already made songs.

These are just two of so many different tools to bring into your classroom! If there are others that you enjoy, please feel free to share, or if you have used these in your classroom, how have you used them?
