30 Posts About Free Education Technology Tools & Resources

by Kelly Walsh on May 26, 2010


The Internet Is Rich With Free Tools for Educators. Here’s A Bunch.

I’ve been meaning to put together this list of the many free apps that I’ve blogged about, and make it available as a tabbed section on the site. I’ve got the list mostly together now and realized it would make for a nice mid-week post.

All of the articles below reference free technologies and/or resources. The posts are simply listed in alphabetical order (I haven’t quite decided how best to organize them otherwise). I hope you find something fun and useful here!

Of course, the king of free tech for educators is blogger Richard Byrne and his “Free Tech For Teachers” site. Be sure to check it out and tap into a continuous stream of free ed tech resources and ideas about how to use them.

I have started a collaborative blog called Free Tech for Schools where people can post how they use free technology in the classroom. So far we have had some excellent guest posts and I am always looking for more.

This blog is wonderful. I am new to blogging and can’t believe the extremely valuable information on your blog. I haven’t had a chance to check out all of the but I did view Naimish’s homework calendar. It is such a valuable tool; user friendly to both students an teachers and a great organizational tool to help students prepare for future job responsibilities. I look forward to following your blog regularly

Check it out? very simple…and you can tweet it straight to the tweet-sphere..

I was hoping you could add my homework calendar resource on here. The core service is free with optional premium features.
I created it for my school Henry Compton and since then I have made it available to a wider audience. It is now being used in 200+ schools around the world. It hasn’t got thousands of features but it does a couple of things really well and it’s simple, no frills so teachers find it really easy to use. Hope your community find is useful.

I would love to get your feedback on it if you get a chance?

Many Thanks

PS Great blog by the way!
