Here are some new tech tips from the Smackdown session. The "Smackdown" is an open mic type event. Each participant gets only 2 minutes to share their favorite tech tips. I love this because I found a few new things:
Sidenote: If you are just getting started with Twitter, check out this blog post about how educators can use Twitter!

I'm planning on making a virtual 360 degree tour of my classroom for my website.
K-8 Free Math Practice Site
AppStart Great apps to get started with an iPad
Real-time web based behavior management (also conveyed to parents) with cute avatars and positive reinforcement! I love that it can track data and have all your behavior records for the entire year in one place!
Database for educational apps- great resource!
Cybraryman recommended this for sharing during Skype sessions. He creates books and shares them with classrooms he skypes with.
This is a visual bookmarking site. I like this one to use with my first graders. I have a reading one and a math one. I set them as the homepage for easy navigation.
Free online grading! Works with Google Forms.
An app that turns your social media into a magazine format! My favorite app. Works with Google Reader, Facebook and Twitter as well as the news.
