Educational technology tools are often quite expensive. With limited budgets for educators to purchase instructional technology programs, it is a challenge to acquire a variety of technology tools to use for instruction.

Participants will explore a variety of free technology teaching tools, such as Glogster, Screen-cast-o-matic, WebQuests, Voki, Animoto, Storybird, Zimmer Twins, and others. A resource for how to select the right tool for the learning goal is also shared. Participants will receive a handout of free teaching tools and the URLs for the websites for the web-based tools.
