The following is a list of "cool tools" presented at the IT Summit by Alec Couros, Dean Shareski, and Hall Davidson:
  1. Camstudio - screen capture video
  2. Tineye - A reverse search engine; ideal for finding attribution of images
  3. Class Tools - Create free educational games, quizzes, activities and diagrams. Dean Shareski demonstrated the random name generator.
  4. WiTopia - While not free, this tool is a lifesaver when you need access to a denied or filtered site. For example, Google music is not available in Canada, but WiTopia allows the user to choose a location that is within the accepted geographic area. WiTopia's greatest strength is its ability to provide powerful data security when using free public Wi-Fi. For those who prefer not to pay.
