What Can I Do With...?

To allow you to go straight to the relevant page on the Phoebe web site this is a copy of a information from the Phoebe web site which maps between technologies and teaching activities.

Overview

The pages that are linked to from this page are intended to help you if you know something about a particular technology or tool and want ideas for what you can do with it. See What technology can I use for...? if you want to know what different tools can support a particular activity.

Below, you’ll find an alphabetic list of different types of technologies and tools, with links to pages on which you can learn more about each type. Where a particular type of technology can have more than one name (e.g. “chat” and “instant messaging”), we have grouped these on the same page. However, if you don’t see a particular name in this list, it may occur inside another page instead. In this case, type the name in Phoebe’s Search box at the top right of this window and click the Search button.

Note: As far as possible, we avoid naming specific products. In part, this is because the range of tools available is constantly changing, especially in the “freeware” sector. Moreover, where we do name a particular product, this should not be taken as an endorsement of, or advertisement for, that product.
