The Unquiet Librarian I rarely write posts about tech tools in recent years, but I thought I would briefly share some of my “go to” resources that have become an integral part of my work since coming to Norcross High in August of 2013. These apps and devices are essential to the work I’m doing related to teaching and learning, especially for capturing student work whether it is for archival purposes, assessment, collaborative work between classes, or to merely document learning activities and experiences in our work with teachers and students. They also help me collect qualitative data, celebrate all aspects of student learning, and interact with both students and teachers. I’ll also share our essential non-technology oriented tools that we can’t live without here in the NHS Library Learning Studio.

Although Tim Berners-Lee is the father of the World Wide Web, he does not profit from it the way other inventors profit from their inventions. In fact, the Web is an open, de-centralized entity in which anyone can participate. Though web technology and the Internet can be regulated, and often is by governments, the World Wide Web is not owned by anyone.
