Web Tools for Teachers: ✨Tricks and 😨 Treats of e-learning
The use of technology in education can bring about a lot of advantages for students as well as a nuisance for teachers. The offer of learning apps and platforms is huge, which is great but… that can also lead to confusion. Actually, many teachers’ headaches can be avoided knowing how to choose the right platform for the right purpose.
Instead of feeling old-fashioned, overwhelmed, or ineffective, teachers can explore the potential of user-friendly ICT tools which enable them to create enjoyable materials and tasks.
