Our round-up list today features some interesting new educational web tools we have curated in the last couple of weeks. These tools have been emailed to us for separate reviews but we thought it would be best to feature them all in one list. As is the case with all of our Educational Web Tools series, we only include the ones that we think will be an added value to your EdTech toolkit. If you have other suggestions to add to the list, share them with us for review. Enjoy
