Web 2.0 Resources for BYOT Programs

As my school district prepares to implement BYOT in the 2012-2013 school, I have collected Web 2.0 tools that students and faculty (grades 7-12) could use.  Because of the sheer number of apps for mobile devices, I  have not included any apps.

Recommendations would be greatly appreciated!  Leave a comment with your recommendations!  Thank you!!

  1. I’ve done what I rarely do with this post. I dragged a bookmark to my pristine desktop. This will force me back to check out all of these tools. Thanks for the great list.
    I have been curating a set of bookmarks. Feel free to browse them. http://delicious.com/danriles

  3. Along with instant polling, Celly can also be used to send group texts, alerts, and student reminders. Phone #’s remain hidden too and it’s a free service: http://cel.ly/schools

    • Drake,

      Thank you for pointing that out. I just recently discovered Celly. (on #BYOTchat – Thursdays at 9 PM -EDT) I’m excited about using it next fall with my marching band.
