While it is helpful to use technology to more deeply engage your students it is also important that you don't use technology just for the sake of using technology.  In other words it has to be meaningful and provide value to your course.  I am sure that you are all aware of that but I just want you to understand that we do not want to push technologies on you if it does not fit your particular subject or situation.  However, the goal is that you could find at least a few of the following tools that would fit for your individual situations.
My biggest tip for you would be to just jump in and try new things.  Don't be afraid that you are going to break it.  If you mess up you can always press the delete button!
Have fun. :)

Engaging Students with Technology

These tools can be used for presenting subject matter to engage students online or in the regular classroom.  Of course these tools can also be used in projects to more deeply engage students in thier subject areas and to give them a creative outlet in which to express themselves.
 "If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow."
~John Dewey

Connecting with Students of this Generation

These tools are geared toward collaboration and/ or expression.  They can help build and strengthen student-to-teacher relationships and student-to-student relationships.   

Use these tools to collect information from your students.

If you have heard of other technologies that you would like to explore more in-depth but you do not neccisarly have time to research them, please let me know and I will look into them and bring them to this site at a later date.
