Here we are again celebrating the new year. Recovery is a good opportunity to take stock and get to grips with your digital tools. The ones we have already forgotten, the ones we never or rarely use, the ones we want to give a chance and then eat the bare essentials. Here are five of them.
5 digital tools that I will be very difficult to do without. 5 safe values from my digital toolkit for schoolwork.
Research. Digitize, Simplify and Value Learning
Experquiz allows you to create quizzes and assessments for all subjects. You can integrate different types of questions and combine them with interactive tools. This is a very high quality French solution. In addition to assessments and questionnaires, ExperQuiz offers all the tools to create and deploy training. It can also be used for e-learning modules by integrating course materials, media, assessments, and certificates. As I pointed out in a recent article on this assessment tool. “ExperQuiz is one of the best online knowledge management and assessment platforms, if not the best.”. A very complete solution, it adapts to the needs of companies in terms of training and skills management, as well as for school or university use.
You can go. An online graphic design studio for all your needs
Do I still need to submit You can go ? I have done this many times here. This online tool makes graphic creation accessible to everyone and adds to the fun. You will really enjoy creating great class posters or even stickers, presentations, timetable… The platform offers thousands of models to avoid the fear of a blank page. You’ll also find millions of photos and illustrations that you can freely use in your creations. Canva’s success is also due to its educational version. Special access for teachers as well as for their students with adapted models. What are you waiting for to start? Canva is free for teachers.
Digital. Free services for education
Digitalis is an absolutely brilliant open source digital toolkit. There are too many digital tools to mention here, they are perfect for classroom use. Take a look at an article I wrote about them some time ago. Digitalis offers responsible and free digital tools to support teaching and learning in person and remotely. Useful work done by Emmanuel Zimmert and a great calling card for free software in education.
BitWarden. Manage and protect all your passwords
BitWarden saved my life a thousand times. How to remember dozens of access codes and passwords that accumulate throughout our digital lives. BitWarden is a kind of ultra-secure digital safe that allows you to always have all your logins and passwords at hand, regardless of whether you are on a computer, tablet or laptop. Bitwarden is open source, free, and ultra-secure. Installed on your computer, it can even choose a secure password for you if you wish. Great productivity tool. With BitWarden, you will never forget your password again.
Evernote. Elephant memory to never forget anything
Evernote is my second brain. This tool will be your best ally to remember everything. With Evernote, you can store your notes, projects, tasks, schedules, and memories in one place accessible on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. This is a multimedia notebook where you can archive and classify whatever you want. You can add text, images, audio, scans, PDFs, and documents. You can scan important documents or handwritten notes and keep them handy on all your devices. Evernote’s strength lies mainly in its extremely powerful built-in search engine. Type in a word and Evernote will look for your stacks of documents, no matter how big they are. He will find it even in a scanned handwritten note or in a photograph. All at the speed of light. The personal version costs about 6 euros per month. One of my digital investments that I have never had to regret.
That’s all these five digital tools that have become indispensable for me. And you, what are your main digital tools and services for this new school year?
