Share this post:  
The start of the new school year 2021-2022 comes amidst exceptional times as the entire world is still struggling to contain the nefarious effects of the current pandemic. Apparently, the post-pandemic education, as I argued elsewhere, is different. It is mainly characterised by a predominant hybridity in which both modes of online and in-person instruction fuse together in such a way that it becomes hard to conceive of one without the other. Digitality, to say the least, has become a central component in the pedagogical equation of the post-pandemic classroom.

To help you make the best of this new school year, I am sharing with you this collection of educational technology tools that you can use to boost your instructional practice and enhance your overall productivity. This post is part of a series of posts featuring back to school resources for teachers.
