Always Up-to-Date List of Getting Started Guides

OK, I admit it: Keeping this list of resources constantly up to date isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Having said that, I’ve revised this list almost 60 times since publishing it, so I’m not doing too bad. But I’ve changed the graphic above to reflect the frequency at which I’m updating this list.

June, 2019

There are a lot of great educational technology tools available that can be used to enhance the teaching and learning in your classroom. Knowing where to start when exploring them and determining whether or not they’re a good fit for your classroom can be tough.

This post includes an always up to date list of “getting started” guides for many educational technology tools. They’re great resources for learning a new tool, brushing up on updated features, or refreshing your knowledge.

This is a curated list that will be updated regularly.

Resources marked with a  icon are only accessible to Durham District School Board users.
