A note about the resources listed here:
- All sites are either free or "freemium" (offering both free and paid accounts).
- Many are geared toward secondary students, but most are widely applicable.
- The sites are either specifically for educational use or have features that were not prohibitive to using them with students (i.e. inappropriate ads or content).
- These lists are not all-inclusive, just a selection.
