The teacher can make post similar to Facebook to keep students and parents informed of homework assignments that are upcoming. As well as, keep track of classroom behavior and individual student behavior and give individual "monsters" points or deduct points based off of classroom behavior.

Polleverywhere.com is a semi-free tool which is the student can use to anonymously answer questions through whatever digital device is available for them. The teacher would ask a question of the class and then ask them to respond using text or website. There are multiple formats available for the answers including: multiple choice, short answer, word cloud, etc. When the poll time is over, answers can be displayed for viewing and discussion. I have used the word cloud format for the answers for this specific poll. It is a good entry to a new subject to check for knowledge or even to test for readiness for an exam.

Socrative is an engaging, user-friendly tool to visualize student understanding in real time. Teachers can create formative assessments via quizzes, quick question polls, exit tickets and "Space Races" (where students work individually, or in groups on a shared device, or answer individually within a pre-assigned group; students can track their progress in comparison to the whole class and feedback is immediate). Socrative allows the teacher to select a state standard according to subject. A Socrative Shared Quiz List is available for teachers to use, glean from and easily add to (organized by subject area). Quizzes can also be imported and exported through Excel or downloaded to a pdf file. There is a free and paid version of Socrative.

A text generator is fairly self-explanatory. It allows a creator to input their text and alter the font or generate the font on an image - e.g. a newspaper headline.
I like to give my students several newspaper articles without the headlines. I then ask them to read, summarize, and come up with their headline. Sometimes they are funny; sometimes they are spot-on. I have them write them down, but using a headline generator gives students a chance for creativity while performing the assignment. I chose Textcraft due to its connection with the popular game Minecraft, but there are many others that an educator could use in conjunction with a word-cloud generator.

Delicious is a free web tool that arranges bookmarks for the user. It is extremely useful in the classroom as the students can load links into delicious and have quick access to any links or bookmarks that they have visited throughout the semester. Some links that I have created are Wevideo, Google Classroom, Crash Course History and much more. Delicious is extremely helpful for teachers as well. It is a great tool for a teacher to organize their links and bookmarks so that they can quickly navigate and eliminate downtime in the classroom between jumping from one online application to the next.

Mentimeter is an online interactive presentation tool. It has a free component and special, reduced educator pricing plans for advanced features. This Web 2.0 tool does not require the installation of an app. Students simply use the Internet to access the URL, www.menti.com, and enter a code to join the discussion. Allowing every student to have a voice increases classroom participation and engagement. Results can be displayed real-time or hidden. This tool includes a profanity filter and exporting capability. In addition, it can be used as a discussion or assessment tool. It gives the quite students a chance to be heard in addition to the extroverts. The only disadvantage is that it does cost money to get the exporting and data features. However, but the cost is kept to a minimum for educators.
URL to join discussion: www.menti.com
Discussion code: 225578 (good for approx. 45 days)

Jeopardy Labs
Jeopardy Labs is an online, DIY Jeopardy creator. One of my students actually introduced me to it by making one of her own for a student-taught mini lesson. Students can participate in many different ways: individual, teams, or even making their own Jeopardy to lead the class. It could also be given as personal review at home.

Notable is an amazing app that works across all devices and web browsers. I have used it many times in group activities through the chrome extension. Students can collaborate on group projects by uploading an image,document, or pdf. The app takes a screen shot and allows users to annotate important information or add post it notes for quick thoughts. Notable can also use photos from your phone and the whole app is cloud based. Cloud based apps allow students to view other's contributions without being tied down to one device. The only disadvantage of the app is the entry price. However, I have been awarded money through grant programs that have allowed for the membership of similar extensions. Overall, this app is great for reading and annotating any sort of text.

Plickers is a great tool for the classroom when it comes to taking formative assessments. It lets teachers collect real-time data without the need for student devices. Plickers gives students the chance to participate and engage in learning without feeling self-concious.

This is a link to one of my reports after I gave an exit ticket back at the start of school last year. I enjoy using plickers a few times a week because the students really enjoy taking exit tickets this way.

Coggle is a wonderful tool that students and professors can use to create mind maps. Mind maps can be used for brainstorming, summarizing, or discussing literature. Students can color code or label each stem of the mind map to specify what it is that they are thinking or processing. It is beneficial to use this web tool once students have completed a reading assignment. It will illuminate how well the students comprehended the text.
