Exploring free technology for teachers

Whilst browsing Facebook I came across a link to an interesting article in one of the groups I have joined. Firstly, the Facebook group is called, Free technology for teachers and I think it is well worth joining so check it out. Anyway, the article, Ten popular Ed tech tools that were updated this summer introduces us to ten popular technology services that we could be utilising. There is a summary to describe each and a link to assist if you wish to explore any that may appeal. I did just that and found what appears to be a very new tool and it is ThingLink. Basically Thinglink allows you to create an interactive video and it all looks rather easy! Basically, you can turn those YouTube videos into interactive images by adding in pinmarks. I urge you to check it out and they have even provided a video to give an example of the tools capabilities.
