1. TECHNOLOGY TOOLS ASSESSMENT Evaluation conducted by: Julia Tyquiengco ED451 FA09 2. This assessment provides a snapshot of my personal evaluation of eight different technology tools and their potential value in an educational setting. 3. Evaluation Criteria 1. EASE OF USE I was able to use tool immediately without having to spend too much time with a tutorial. 2. TRUE EDUCATIONAL VALUE Student learning will definitely be enhanced with the use of this tool. 3. FUN TO USE In my humble opinion, #s 1 and 2 are of no use if 3 is not true! 4. RATING SYSTEM These technology tools have been ranked using a SCALE rating system of 1 5 A "5 rating = Would DEFINITELY use this tool as an educator A "1" rating = Would definitely NOT use this tool as an educator.
