Tutora posted the 82 Hottest EdTech Tools of 2017. I have decided to post re each, and we start with #70 on the list:

70. Simple K12 – Practical Online Teacher Training

As nominated by Shelly Terrell author of the 30 Goals Challenge for Teachers.

Simple K12 help motivate, inspire, and enrich more than 600,000 teachers per year. In turn, these teachers are also there for each other. They are all in the same boat. They stay up late and get up early. They grade papers in the car. Make lesson plans while making dinner. Email parents while folding laundry. Run the school newspaper while watching ballet practice… and SimpleK12 gives them the ideas and support they need to never give up.

22. EDPuzzle – The Easiest Way to Engage Your Students With Videos

As nominated by Bethany Petty of Teaching With Technology.

Edpuzzle allows teachers to easily customize a video by adding questions and audio throughout the video to have more engaging video-lessons. Helping to dispel the classic problem of students dozing off during longer videos, Edpuzzle allows you to add natural stopping points throughout the video. Add pauses at the end of each key video segment to trigger questioning and discussion amongst the class – all while making sure they’re still paying attention!

Edpuzzle also allows teachers to encourage self-paced learning by adding their own voice recording on top of the existing video. This means students can watch or review videos individually depending on their level of progress, helping to remove the chance of them becoming bored due to learning something they have already mastered.
