One of my favorite tools, Edshelf,Â wasÂ slated to close down soon. But that was before the education community started to campaign toÂ #saveedshelf. Â This encouragement spurred Mike Lee, the brains behind Edshelf,Â Â to start a kickstarter to help save it.
What is Edshelf? Find out via thisÂ quick video from Michael Britt.
Basically, it’sÂ an awesome directory of education tools with reviews and ratings by educators. It’s easy to find resources,Â add them to your own curated boards and then embed them on your web pages. Know of tools not in the directory?Â Add them! Follow other educators and benefit from their knowledge and expertise.Â It’s anÂ invaluable treasure trove.
I recentlyÂ mentioned to aÂ colleague that if we had to, we could walk into a workshop on a moment’s notice and get through the session by having participants explore the resources and tools in Edshelf. And it would be a great session!
Basically, Edshelf saves you time and makes you look even smarter than you already are! Isn’t that worth a donation to the kickstarter? And besides, cool t-shirt anyone??
