Groupwerk's TLC - The Learner's Cloud is a collection of content creation web apps, digital media tools and K-12 educational links. These hand-made directories are organized to assist students, parents and teachers personalize their own digital space experience. The criteria for these resources to be a cloud catch for the TLC are:

  • a FREE app, service, tool or link. If not free, the resource is highly recommended;
  • no advertisements, or the advertising from a free service is tolerable;
  • no software install required to a local hard drive; 
  • works across devices, operating systems and web browsers. 
Go to my new site as I'm excited to bring this free resource to people interested in project and inquiry-based learning.
