EdTech Cool Tools - Honorable Mentions

Throughout the month of December I shared my "Cool Tools 2023" series where we explored some of the year's best tools for teaching and learning.

This year we focused on artificial intelligence tools and how they can be used in schools.

You can access all of the cool tools in the series as they come out at and in this Google Slideshow.

With all the amazing AI tools available, it just isn't possible to fit them all in a list of twenty-four. And it seems like there are new tools coming out every day! So as an extra bonus to the "Cool Tools 2023" series I am listing other AI tools that I wasn't able to cover as Honorable Mentions.

Some of these are favorites that I have used, while others are newer to me and I am still needing to explore them more. And of course this list is still far from complete.

Please let me know what is still missing from the list. I will come back to this post periodically to add more tools that I come across or that get recommended to me.
