Free Web Tools – #EdublogsClub Prompt 5

This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and edtech enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt. 

Many of the web tools and services that we use in our personal and professional lives don’t cost us anything. From Twitter to Google Apps to Wikipedia, we’ve become accustomed to not paying money for most of what we do on the internet. And that includes teaching and learning resources and sites we may use with our students.

Prompt: Write a post about free web tools.

Here are some ideas or topics you may wish to include:

  • Share your absolute favorite free web tool and discuss why
  • Write a ‘how-to’ post on using a free tool
  • Do a review in a category of multiple free web tools – for example, compare 3 web tools for photo editing
  • Discuss any thoughts or experiences you have about free web services
  • Talk about a time when a free service you were using shut down

Any Feedback?

We are moving into the second month of the #EdublogsClub, can you believe it!?

Feel free to leave any questions or feedback in the comments below, or contact us if you’d prefer. We’re happy to hear any prompt ideas too! Our goal is to make this as useful and enjoyable as possible for all 🙂

PS:

I have a secret that I can’t quite spill the beans about just yet. But it is going to be big, and there is a bit of a hint about what it might be hidden in this prompt. You won’t have to wait but around 48 hours from the time I post this for you to know what I’m referring to, promise.

Happy blogging!

  1. Better late than never right? Life had kept me occupied, but I am back! I really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts and found them very useful in writing my own. They helped me avoid repeating what others had already shared (I am all about novel responses) and they triggered tools that I love and hadn’t thought to share. So thanks everyone! 🙂

    1. Hi Anne,

      For some reason, I can’t comment on your blog. I love G Suite also, and have found Calendar to be essential for me, since my schedule changes on a daily basis! I tend to use Tasks in Gmail instead of Keep, but I will give Keep a try. I downloaded the app a few months ago, but have found my workflow with Tasks to work quite well, and consequently haven’t made the leap!

      1. Damianne,

        Thanks for your comments. I am sorry that my blog wasn’t playing nice. I think I have fixed the problem for future commenters. Thanks for pointing it out! Let me know if you try out Keep. I personally tried Tasks and couldn’t get it tow work well for me. I think it is a workflow preference.
        Have a great day and I look forward to reading your post.
