Tech Tools for Teachers on a Tight Budget: My Presentation at FETC

For those who couldn't attend this year's FETC (Florida Educational Technology Conference), you truly missed out. Actor and activist Ed Begley Jr. kicked off the conference by speaking on this year's theme, "Doing More With Less." (I posted some footage on YouTube here - The expo hall was incredible and there were several very informative sessions. I presented at this year's FETC on "Tech Tools for Teachers on a Tight Budget", a topic that seemed to go hand in hand with this year's theme. I shared several freeware and cloudware apps I use in my computer lab classroom as well as resources for finding funding for projects. I'm attaching a copy of the Powerpoint from my presentation to share with those who couldn't attend. I'd also like to extend an invitation to any Classroom 2.0 members who were unable to attend my session at FETC to a community I've created to continue the dialogue started in my session. Members can share their tech tool discoveries and lesson plan ideas and access a comprehensive collection of links to freeware and related resources. Here's the URL -

My presentation is attached in a few different formats.

Great ideas Andy, thanks for sharing them. I use most of these tools myself and agree with your suggestions.

I am in the planning stages for a free tech conference in our area, so your handouts came at a good time in helping me do some brainstorming. We're doing more web-based apps, but I appreciate your sharing here.
