With nearly 200 free software applications, this new update is just jammed full of awesome free tools and tons of insights into how to use them in your courses and classrooms!
If you've followed EmergingEdTech for a few years now, you probably know that in 2011, 2012, and 2013, we offered updates to this eBook, one of the most appreciated offering from the site each year. 2014 marked the first year we didn't get an update out (it was a very busy year!). Well, I've been working on it for months and the new update is finally done!

Out With the Old
A lot has changed since we published the last update in 2013. As with past updates, we checked all the links and removed old and outdated references. We also pulled content and sections that just aren't as relevant or as interesting as they once were. Lastly we re-organized materials where it made sense, and worked to pretty things up throughout the eBook, using a larger font, and adding fresh graphics to kick off each chapter! I think it turned out pretty awesome and it is just loaded with cool tools, and tips and techniques to help you rock them in the classroom.
