ICT Tools

I am a physics teacher. This list is being built up to keep track of online resources I have found useful in my teaching and planning. This is a mix of organisational tools, flipped learning tools, quizzing, and learning/activities for students.

Sign up, Online Whiteboard | RealtimeBoard

Sign up using either Facebook or Google+ account, load your docs, invite the team, start collaborating and brainstorming.

This is Padlet on steroids. It is an infinitely large board, that can be used to collect and curate an enormous range of material. I have found this useful in brainstorming, course planning, etc. Content can be embedded and is directly accessible on the board.

I can see massive potential for this in the classroom, where students working on similar projects, or in the same class, will be able to collectively create, curate and pool resources. The visual layout allows for overview. Doing this will probably require a premium account, which allows unlimited collaborators on a board.

Planboard - Lesson planning made easy for teachers

Planboard helps teachers streamline lesson plans, find resources, and collaborate with others. Align with school's schedule. Integrate and track curriculum standards, such as Common Core State Standards, Ontario Curriculums, TEKS, and more. Share lesson plans to the world and collaborate with colleagues.

An account gives you more superpowers, like X-Ray vision.


Socrative lets teachers engage and assess their students with educational activities on tablets, laptops and smartphones. Through the use of real time questioning, instant result aggregation and visualization, teachers can gauge the whole class' current level of understanding. Socrative saves teachers time so the class can further collaborate, discuss, extend and grow as a community of learners.
