EdTech Links of the Week - 12-18-23

Each week I keep an eye out for the latest edtech resources through blogs, social media, podcasts, videos, user groups, and more. I then try to reshare these resources in many ways.

One way I share these is here on the blog in these "EdTech Links of the Week" posts. See below to explore the latest batch of resources, and be sure to share with others who may benefit.

If you want to make sure you don't miss new resources, you can:

This week I have 2 resources from around the Internet and 7 resources from my blog.

๐Ÿ“– ReadM
  • AI-powered tool to help students become fluent readers.
  • Choose from a wide library of books.
  • Listen to the book read aloud as needed.
  • Then read the book aloud yourself.
  • The AI will assess the reading and provide real-time feedback and assistance.
  • There is also a teacher version available to track all your students and their progress.

๐Ÿงช CK-12 PLIX
  • PLIX (which stands for Play, Learn, Interact, and eXplore) is a collection of over 1,100 free math and science interactives.
  • PLIX allows learners to play with ideas in a concept, adjust different variables, explore the effects, and learn by doing.
  • The interactives cover math and science including Algebra, Analysis, Arithmetic, Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Earth Science, Geometry, Life Science, Measurement, Physical Science, Physics, Probability, Statistics, and Trigonometry.
  • The interactives can also be filtered by subject, keyword, concept, or standard.
  • Students can use PLIX to review concepts, explore and gain a deeper understanding of concepts, or interact with a real world example of math or science.
  • Teachers can use PLIX as a warm-up for introducing a concept, a fun assignment, or a way to expand a conversation.

❄️ Cool Tools 2023 

As we wrap up 2023 I am sharing 24 of my favorite "Cool Tools" from this year, with one new entry per day from December 1st through 24th (sort of like an EdTech advent calendar).
  • For this year I am going with the theme of artificial intelligence tools and resources, since that has been the hot topic.
  • As I release each new entry, I will add a new link to a growing list in the post at
  • And you can access each tool through my "Cool Tools 23" slideshow here - Google Slides link
So far the Cool Tools I have shared include:
