edshelf: You’ll Need Sunscreen for This One!

One of my favorite ed tech reviewers highlighted the website edshelf recently.  My bleary screen burned eyes  are a testimony to the “awesomeness” of this site and the treasure it is, and will be, to educators around the world.

One of the best things about this resource is the ability to search for apps by different criteria which can be used alone or in conjunction with each other. The search options are: price, grade, subject, platform, category.  This was a great deal of fun to test drive, expecially with the price set to free, a most popular attribute for teachers.

Another great aspect of this website is that all the applications on it are peer reviewed. Oh how nice it is to consult a resource that facilitates the avoidance of time spent on tools that turn out to be clumsy, not effective or just plain useless.  Additionally, the site also allows comments by educators who used the tool in question. This provides a forum to share how the tool is being used by others, as well as reviews by individuals

Don’t get under the weather using The Cloud! Check out edshelf,  an educators quintessential sunny day at the beach. Just be sure to wear your sunglasses because you won’t be able to take your eyes off the computer screen while digging around in this site.
