There are several technology tools that teachers should use within weeks after school begins, according to an elementary-school computer teacher. Mary Beth Hertz suggests -- with the help of subscribers to her Twitter feed -- that teachers use programs called QuickieQ and AnswerGarden to survey students and their parents on the first day back at school. She also suggests the social-networking site Twiducate, which is designed especially for students. Hertz also includes information about Prezi, which can be used to create classroom presentations similar to PowerPoint.
