Free (and almost free) Tools for Educators
Educators bring so much to our lives, they teach us they teach us, they inspire us, they give us valuable insight, they give us something that we can take with us for the rest of our lives and they often do it on a limited budget.
FREE TOOLS 4 EDUCATORS is a list tools that can help teachers bring visual content to their classrooms; both traditional and online. While most tools are free there may occasionally be a fee involved for some but they are only recommended if the fee is minimal, the cost is well worth the expense and if there is a free version to use in some capacity.

My good friend Rose who works extensively with charity and not-for-profit events, many of which originate from NAAAP (National Association of Asian American Professionals), has recently shared a few sites with me that she uses as media resources for her publications.
Thank you Jason, for sharing Bensound with us. Bensound is a collection of royalty free audio assets that, as he mentions, "can work well for video background". Good Point, Jason! You can make a good video look and sound great with appropriate BG music and Bensound has wide selection of music ranging from happy to serious, acoustic to electronic. Don't forget to credit the site when using their audio.
