If you have a website of any kind, this must have tools list is an incredible list from Annie Cushing. It is a must bookmark and use gem.

IF you use Google Hangouts, you'll want to check out Google moderator which lets you ask questions and people can suggest answers and vote up answers. You can use this in class as well.

I have some sample "Magic erase sheets" in my classroom and LOVE THEM. You can stick them to ANY wall. They make them gridded or plain and they stick everywhere. I've been using dry erase boards but the problem was they wouldn't stick. So, now, I can use these and stick them anywhere. I love them. I'd get a box of sheets and use them in the classroom. Very cool.

Better file converter than zamzar. (Hat tip to Richard Byrne - free tech for teachers) because it doesn't require email.

There is a new site I'm seeing called Buffer. It lets you find things and put them into your "buffer" - another autotweeting type service. You can use with facebook but beware that often Facebook makes things not typed "live" into facebook have a lower priority and not put them on homestreams.

Great post from Lifehacker of their 50 apps they are most thankful for with the links to the posts they've written about them. This is my kind of very functional list. I love it!

One note. I totally agree about Dropbox, ccCleaner, Audacity, and Paint.net. My students LOVE paint.net.

Visual bee looks at the words and text on your slides and helps "soup up" your powerpoint presentation for you. There is a free plug in for PowerPoint. If you've gotta use it, perhaps some of the intelligence in here would be beneficial for you

Google ngram viewer is an important tool that searches the frequency of the occurrence of certain words across all text of a period. I've blogged about this before. Another important tool for researching.

Send and receive files from anyone into your dropbox. Annual staffs can use this to have people share photos with them or other teachers can have their students turn in files. Great augmentation to dropbox.

Create word clouds with just about anything. (Tip from Tammy Worcester) paste in free answers from Google forms surveys. (Tip from me - paste into MS word first and turn it all into lowercase.)

This incredible website lets you pick all of the software you want and automatically says NO to toolbars and "junk" you don't want on the computer. I'm using it to make sure I have everything on the new computers I'm putting in at school. It is missing a few virtual world programs but overall it saves TONS of time! It even does updates! Works for Linux and PC.

Interesting website for those who are graduating or getting married. This lets you create one master registry out of everything on the web. Interesting.

For nonprofits, you can create a list of the things that you need and people can put money towards those items. So, this could be used for schools too. Teachers could make a wishlist. Cool idea.
