Create storyboards without a storyboard artist! Filmmaker, teachers, students, businesses all love Storyboard That, easy online storyboard & comic creator.

Flipgrid. Ignite Classroom Discussion.

Video for Active and Social Learning: Flipgrid is simple yet powerful. Educators create grids with topics and students respond with recorded videos to discuss, reflect, and share via webcam, tablet, or mobile device.


BrainPOP has animated videos for all subjects with options for varying levels of content including Brainpop Jr. and Brainpop ESL.

LEGO Education

Whether you favor a structured or a flexible approach to your STEM lessons, the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 robotics solution is for you.

Soundtrap for Music and Podcasts

Make music online by recording vocals, guitars and more. Invite friends to collaborate. It’s free and no download is required. Works on Mac, Windows, iPad, Android tablets and phones, Linux and ChromeBooks.

Drawp for School is a powerful creativity tool with built-in collaboration, cloud storage, and workflow management. There will be more posted about Drawp for School and Drawp for Unlimited on my blog soon.

It also works great with partner apps such as DoInk, Touchcast, and more.

SMART Notebook 16.2

The current version of Smart Notebook software is 16.2 and version 17 will be released soon. I love the new Game Show feature that allows teachers to create engaging content in a variety of game-based formats.
