Yaya's Top Ten Technology Tools

Stuck on how to make a lesson fun and entertaining? Or even making a boring powerpoint to an awesome presentation? These technology tools will transform your professional life into exciting ride!

1

Google Classroom

Google Classroom

This is another one of the amazing tools that Google gives us. Classroom by Google is where teachers can make a online classroom of sorts, and add their students. By doing this, you give students an opportunity to do their classwork from anywhere they are at. Thus, limiting the percentage of missed or lost work because of handing in work on paper or not having the space or opportunity to do it. This tool can be reached from any technology tool (computers, phones, tablets, etc). I would recommend teachers in middles grades and up to use this tool, it would be a lot of help for you and your students! :)
