I am not familiar with most of them, since many of them are quite new for me, I will need to explore them / play with them before I actually try to include them in my teaching practice. The only apps I am familiar with is Skype and Twitter.
Now I have much more material to go over to, I wish we had had the time to actually explore some of them in class, I am particularly interested in the apps and websites that can make learning more fun, or the ones that can make my classes more interactive even if I only have computer and projector in my classroom.
