Okay, so you've been wanting to try out more of the awesome free web apps you know are out there, but you just haven't got around to it. Well, here's your chance to get started an easy, fun way!
Over the next three months, each Monday we'll send an email to signed up participants,Â with information about a cool free tool and how to easily get started using it in your classrooms and courses.
Try the tool out, drop us a quick line about your experience or share what you've created, and join the fun! Not only will you learn about some great new web apps for educators, but you'll be eligible for a few freebies we'll give away at the end of the challenge!
In early June, we'll award selected participants free copies of the Flipped Classroom Workshop-in-a-Book eBook, a free enrollment in our Summer 4 Week Online Flipped Class Workshop, a Moby Max license, a Gynzy (Smart Board Interactives) license, and other possible freebies we're working to line up!
We'll also be rolling up some of the feedback from participants in articles to share with EmergingEdTech readers, so you could be ‘famous‘! Well, maybe not famous … but your valuable insights and observations could be part of an article to be read by thousands here on the site!
We hope you'll join us is in the fun and rewarding learning journey.
