As 2013 draws to a close, here are some of the most popular web-based educational tools that have risen quickly in popularity this past year. You may have heard of some of these. If not, take a look and see if they are relevant to you and your students.

Edtech Pro Tip: For your New Year's resolution, pick just one edtech tool and commit to integrating it into your curriculum for January and February. Why just one? Because any more would be overwhelming. Why January and February? Because it can take a couple of months to become truly proficient in a new tool. Good luck!
