Basically there are endless amounts of productivity tools. their main purpose is to help reveiw knowledge, apply knowledge, and to explore new knowledge. however, they are easily broke down by what particular age group you wil be teaching. for me, elementary education, i am somewhat limited to the one's i should use with a younger group of students. for example, refernces such as dictionaries and encyclopedias might quickly lead to loss of focus and motivation for 3rd grader. it would be better to use methods like drill and practice, Educational games, and tutorials. the main thing is making sure the students stay interested in the lesson. in the discussion we were told to make sure we kept up to date on these productivity tools and always stay familiar with them.
