Naturally, I used an online tool to set up this collaborative project. I put together a Google Doc form and asked educators to contribute their ideas. Over 80 suggestions were submitted, but I've distilled them down to the 20 terrific tools listed below. I didn't have room in this blog post to include all of the wonderful recommendations, so be sure to download the complete 10-page freebie from my TeachersPayTeachers store. You'll find links to each of these tech tools in that document.
20 Terrific Presentation Tech Tools

- Google Drive Presentations
- Haiku Deck
- Voice Thread
I thought I was finished with this project last night, and then I had an ah-ha moment. As a teacher, I know I would want a handout to give my students with just a little information about each tool. So I've created an editable student list of these terrific tools in Word format that you can customize. Delete the tools that aren't relevant to your class and add your own. It doesn't have all the tech tool images, but I knew most of you would prefer a simple 2-page document to give your students instead of that 10-page document for teachers! You can download both items from my TpT store.
Share How You've Used Tech Tools
I want to wrap this up by thanking the teachers who contributed to this project. I'm so pleased with the result and I couldn't have done it without your help! I'd also like to invite readers to contribute your own ideas. Have you used any of these tech tools before? Which ones are your favorites? How did you use them in your class? What other tools have you used that are not included on this list? Please share how you've used online tech tools or mobile apps in your classroom. Kids are so motivated by being able to create with these tools, and we would love to hear your suggestions and ideas. Let's keep the collaboration going!
