Tech Tools: Screenr

Screenr is a web-based screen recorder that is easy to use.   Why record your screen?  Think of all the times students ask you to repeat a step or how to do something you have already showed?  With a recorded version it is there anytime students need the reminder or need to learn something new.

Technology Tools: Kaizena

Kaizena is not a new service; however, recently they updated some of the features that make it very appealing in a Google Apps for Education classroom. My favorite: The ability to add a "Resource" as a comment. This one step allows you to go out and find online resources, organize them, editorialize them, and then place them as comments into student work. Just think how much time that could save you!
