Web Tools

We've created a list of online resources for Canadian teachers to help you get the most out of the Internet in the classroom.  These free web tools allow teachers and students to create, collaborate, edit and share user-generated content online. Use them to enhance and extend learning with News4Youth articles and other curriculum.

If you would like to suggest an online resource that you or your students find useful, please contact us and let us know!
