In this Training Edition of Digital Tools for Teachers I have built on the original volume by updating and extending many of the original chapters and also by adding four additional new chapters with links to an additional 35 new tools and resources.
In this book the first three chapters are provided as a guide to teachers who want to use the book for teacher training and development.
Using the tools, tips and more than 20 training activities provided in these first three chapters, a teacher with some basic experience of using technology in the classroom should be able to create motivating hands-on edtech training for their peers or for pre-service trainee teachers.
The fourth additional chapter is dedicated to providing a range of links to ready-made computer games that can be used for language acquisition and development.
The remainder of the book, like the first edition, is a collection of links to tools and resources that have been chosen and organised to enable teachers to easily find ways of applying technology to the activities they do with their students, but these have been amplified with a range of links to an additional 35 new tools.
I sincerely hope you find this book useful and that it helps you to enhance your teaching and training and helps to make your students’ learning experience richer and more engaging.
