Below is a list of some awesome educational web tools that you can use in your classroom or for your professional development. As you probably know, each Sunday I post here a list of the new web tools I stumble upon in different blogs, wikis, and websites and because of my time constraints I can not review each one in a single post and hence gathering them here under the one umbrella heading called : Educational Web Tools.
Check out the list I have assembled for you this week and tell me what you think about it :
