Digital Tools for the Classroom
I’ve compiled a few resources with numerous tools and information for your future reference. Many are free and they seem to have many possibilities for use inside and outside of the classroom.
My own personal favorite website for mindfulness activity use in the classroom.
1) The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society
In discussions about contemplative pedagogy a great deal of attention has been devoted to practical applications of mindfulness in the classroom (what we might call “mindfulness-based pedagogy”). The tendency in this approach is to view mindfulness as a type of technology that can be used to enhance the quality and effectiveness of the teaching and learning experience. ________________________________________________________________________

6) A Ted Talk on the power of online learning and digital tools.
7) RealTimeBoard allows for creativity, collaboration, and can even be used for presentations.
I realize this might have been more interesting in a face-to-face presentation as we could have walked through the websites and briefly reviewed the tools. I hope you find the time to explore these sites on your own.
