re: 10 Tech Tools To Engage Students
I've seen Twitter used in the classroom as a way for students to write and share haikus. I think innovative uses like this are awesome ways to engage students, but I think boundaries are needed to ensure technology is not being incorporated just for the sake of incorporating it.

Another application that should be on every teacher and administrator's radar is ExitTicket.

ExitTicket captures the student's progress, checks for not only understanding of the specific question, but the understanding of the concepts and curriculum and engages the students with Gamification and badging. We are still in our Early Adopter stage, preparing for the full launch August 1st, sign up today to get grandfathered into the Early adopters group while you compare these for FREE.

"ExitTicket is a engaging student response system delivering instant feedback and performance metrics to teachers and students, allowing immediate intervention and reteaching with a tap of a finger, while tracking the student's progress."

Thanks, Mike. Sounds a little more interactive than the traditional exit note on Post-It :)
