What Technology Does What: An #edtech Chart For Teachers What Technology Does What: The Ultimate #edtech Chart For Teachers by TeachThought Staff Okay, we’ve had this post half-finished for long enough that some of the apps we had here are no longer relevant, so we figured it was probably time to go ahead and publish it even if we couldn’t figure out the best way to format it. This is what we hope will be an ongoing collection of the most effective ways to use technology in the classroom. We’d like to see it crowdsourced, so we may convert it to a public document/wiki-type file at some point. We may even just crowdsource it–open it up as a wiki and let you add your expertise. Maybe something like this?
