As you probably know by now, Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has created a separate section labelled educational web tools where we provide quick reviews of websites we assemble from different online resources each week, and because of the time constraint that do not permit us to review each one of these websites in single posts we deem it important that we compile them in a bulleted posts so that you do not miss any resource. The purpose is to keep teachers and educators updated about the newest web tools that they can use in education.
