Free digital educational tools to create interactive content for online teaching and learning

     Technology has the ability to enhance relationships between teachers and students. When teachers effectively integrate technology into subject areas, teachers grow into roles of adviser, content expert, and coach. Technology helps make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun. Students also develop positive feelings of exploitation by mastering new knowledge and skills using digitized learning tools. Here I am presenting some of the most popular free educational tools.
