Welcome to L. Houle's Ed Tools
If this is your first visit to L. Houle's Ed Tools, come on in and explore. You will find the focus of my website is on No Registration Web 2.0 tools and 20th century research resources. During the month of September I gathered 21 new sites, tested them, and updated my site to share them with you. Find these sites listed with NEW after the tool's description on each of my tool pages. I update my website on a monthly basis to eliminate link errors. Do explore my site and be sure to check out my Livebinders presentations list found under About L. Houle for all past presentations including my most recent Fall 2019 Livebinder.
Why No Registration Web 2.0 Tools?
We ask students to produce, publish, collaborate and evaluate with technology as an integral part of the learning process. When working with K-8 students, we’re concerned for their privacy and anonymity. Most Web 2.0 sites require registration or class accounts. Account set up takes time as does keeping track of student usernames/passwords. No registration tools require no usernames/passwords or email addresses and an be used anytime/anywhere in a web browser usually on any device. Tools are tested prior to listing based on a list of 6 criteria and many test results are available on example pages. There’s no need for apps, extensions or software. Any one no registration tool may be the right tool at the right time for a student, project or class. Come explore and find what might be the right creativity, collaboration, conversion, multimedia, photo image, presentation or productivity tool for students to take ownership of their work, excited and ready to share what they have accomplished.
