Tizmos is a personalized homepage with your favorite websites shown as thumbnails.  For educational purposes, teachers may take their favorite websites, place them on Tizmos, and students no longer have to try to find the sites on the Internet.  Sites have been prepared ahead of time for them so that when students go the the computer, they click the icon for Tizmos. They find the correct thumbnail and they are at the site where the lesson is being taught. Lots of time is saved for the teacher and the students.
