Flipped Classroom Technology Workshop SJP 2014

This list curates apps recommended by participants in the Flipped Classroom Technology SJP workshop 2014


Educreations is a recordable interactive whiteboard that captures your voice and handwriting to produce amazing video lessons that you can share online. Students and colleagues can replay your lessons in any web browser, or from within our app on their iPads. Check out the "Showcase" on our homepage or the "Featured" tab in our iPad app to view some great lessons that other teachers have created with Educreations.




The ShowMe iPad app lets you create lessons using a whiteboard. The app is free and there is no limit what you can teach! Our community has created millions of ShowMes, from chemistry to history to football strategy - and more knowledge is being shared everyday.

Join the movement. Let's democratize learning together.


Build better video lessons, together. Find a video and make it yours.

Crop a video

Find a video and use only what you need. Make it to the point.

Add your voice

Record audio notes or explain a video with your voice.

Embed quizzes

Add questions at any time during the video and track your students.


Thinglink technology lets businesses and consumers embed audio, video and rich media links directly in images and share them across the web. Encourage your fans, friends, and consumers to engage with images by watching videos, listening to songs and sound clips, and exploring social media.

Bring in your images from anywhere

Choosing what images to tag is not a problem with ThingLink. We offer three ways to bring images into ThingLink to be tagged.

You can bring images from the web by copying their URL, import your 20 latest images from Flickr with our import tool, or upload them straight to our service from your hard drive.

You are free to tag as many images as you wish, with Basic level users permitted 50 image uploads to begin with.

More image uploads can be earned through our reward system; whenever a new user signs up from one of your images, we give you 10 added image uploads.

Prepare to be amazed at what your images can do for you.

Explain Everything

Explain Everything is an easy-to-use design tool that lets you annotate, animate, and narrate explanations and presentations. You can create dynamic interactive lessons, activities, assessments, and tutorials using Explain Everything's flexible and integrated design. Use Explain Everything as an interactive whiteboard using the iPad video display (via Airplay/cable).

Insert a web browser for live annotations and basic recordings.

Explain Everything records on-screen drawing, annotation, object movement and captures audio via the iPad microphone.

Import Photos, PDF, PPT, XLS, RTF, Pages, Numbers and Keynote from Dropbox, Evernote, Box, WebDAV, Email, iPad photo roll and the iPad camera. Export MP4 movie files, PNG image files, PDFs and share the .XPL project file with others for collaboration.

Turn Any Book or Document into a Digital Classroom

In Subtext teachers and students can exchange ideas as they read, right in the pages of almost any digital book or document. You can also layer in enrichment materials, assignments and quizzes—opening up limitless opportunities to engage students, foster analysis and writing skills, and assess student progress. Subtext's service extends the reading experience far beyond traditional books and aligns with the Common Core Standards across reading, writing and 21st century digital skills.

Read Books, Docs & Web Articles

Subtext offers access to lots of quality content including:

Any book sold by Google Books
Web pages you add to Subtext using our proprietary bookmarklet ‘Save to Subtext'—think NY Times articles and blog posts on NASA For Students
Free and public domain books
Any document in ePub format (or Word Doc or PDF converted to ePub)
Recommended free and Common Core reading lists, organized by grade level is a publishing-by-curation platform. We provide a service making curation a simple and new form of expression on the Web. Thus, you can easily create your online magazine. We want everyone to be a publisher and be heard everywhere.


Simply put teachem allows anyone to create a class from YouTube videos by adding time stamped flashcards and review questions.

There is a lot of video on YouTube. To give you an idea of how fast it is growing in two days of uploads it would take more than a decade to view all the video. YouTube also boasts over 700,000 educational videos in its EDU channel. From a learning standpoint we estimate there is more knowledge on YouTube than has ever been in one location in human history.

. . . you can create as many classes as you want in that school by adding time-stamped flashcards and review questions to the videos.

We believe teachem can do the same for teaching as blogging did for publishing. That is open it up to the masses. Unlike other online learning platforms you are not primarily creating a class for a main catalog, but instead for your own school.


Flubaroo is a free tool that helps you quickly grade multiple-choice or fill-in-blank assignments. I designed it for my own classroom, and want to share it with other teachers... for free!

Important Disclaimer: Flubaroo is a tool offered for use in conjunction with Google Docs, but is not itself a Google product or service.

More than just a grading tool, Flubaroo also:

Computes average assignment score.
Computes average score per question, and flags low-scoring questions.
Shows you a grade distribution graph.
Gives you the option to email each student their grade, and an answer key.


Quickly create engaging, high-quality videos. Camtasia for Mac screen recording software is streamlined, intuitive, and makes you look like a pro. Easily capture onscreen activity, add professional polish, and communicate your message visually.

Record Anything on Your Screen

Fire up the application, webpage, or Keynote presentation that you want to appear in your screencast video, and record everything that happens on your screen. Camtasia for Mac's flexible recording options give you the freedom to capture full screen, window, or region.

Focus on What Matters

Call attention to the important details in your video automatically. SmartFocus analyzes the position of your mouse cursor, which windows are active, when text is entered, and automatically predicts the best spots to zoom into on your video.




Build a lesson around any TED-Ed Original, TED Talk or YouTube video.


TED-Ed’s commitment to creating lessons worth sharing is an extension of TED’s mission of spreading great ideas. Within TED-Ed’s growing library of lessons, you will find carefully curated educational videos, many of which represent collaborations between talented educators and animators nominated through the TED-Ed platform. This platform also allows users to take any useful educational video, not just TED's, and easily create a customized lesson around the video. Users can then distribute TED-Ed lessons, publicly or privately, and track their impact on the world, a class, or an individual student. This platform is also the home to TED-Ed Clubs -- an exciting new program that aims to stimulate and celebrate the best ideas of students around the world.

TED: Ideas worth spreading

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences -- the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh UK each summer -- TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.

On, we make the best talks and performances from TED and partners available to the world, for free. More than 900 TEDTalks are now available, with more added each week. All of the talks are subtitled in English, and many are subtitled in various languages. These videos are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license, so they can be freely shared and reposted.

TED Books

Shorter than a novel, but longer than a magazine article -- a TED Book is a great way to feed your craving for ideas anytime. TED Books are short original electronic books produced by TED Conferences. Like the best TED Talks, they're personal and provocative, and designed to spread great ideas. TED Books are typically under 20,000 words — long enough to unleash a powerful narrative, but short enough to be read in a single sitting.




Jing® is a computer service that lets you capture basic video, animation, and still images, and share them on the web.

Google Apps for Education

Core Google Apps for Education suite includes:

Gmail: Email storage and search tools that help your students find information fast and instant messaging from right inside their accounts.
Google Calendar: Students can organize their schedules and share events and calendars with others.
Google Talk: Students can call or send instant messages to their contacts for free anytime, anywhere in the world.
Google Docs: Share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Collaborate in real-time with your team or with your whole school. You can publish final documents to the entire world, too.
Google Sites: Work together to keep related documents, web content and other information in one place, on one site.
Google Video for education: A video hosting and sharing solution that enables schools and other organizations to use video as an effective medium for internal communication and collaboration.




A quick look at Google+

Google+ makes connecting on the web more like connecting in the real world. Share your thoughts, links and photos with the right circles. Use easy, spontaneous video chat to strike up conversations with as many as nine people at once. Get everyone on the same page with fast, simple group chat. We're very excited about the new approach to sharing we've created through Google+, but this is really just the beginning.


You share different things with different people. But sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldn't be a hassle. Circles make it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself, just like real life.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.

Features of Google Scholar
Search all scholarly literature from one convenient place
Explore related works, citations, authors, and publications
Locate the complete document through your library or on the web
Keep up with recent developments in any area of research

How are documents ranked?

Google Scholar aims to rank documents the way researchers do, weighing the full text of each document, where it was published, who it was written by, as well as how often and how recently it has been cited in other scholarly literature.

YouTube Teachers was created to help teachers use educational YouTube videos to educate, engage and inspire their students. We know how busy teachers can be so we've worked with a group of teachers to put together playlists of partner videos that align with common core standards.

Why Use YouTube in your classroom?

Start your class off with an engaging video clip that brings a lesson to life and sparks a lively discussion.
No longer will students be late for physics class when you begin the class with an engaging clip.
Make the subjects applicable to your students' everyday lives by showing culturally relevant YouTube clips.
Teach students video production and editing skills through projects and upload the videos to your classes YouTube channel.
Free access to thousands of high quality educational videos

YouTube EDU brings learners and educators together in a global video classroom. On YouTube EDU, you have access to a broad set of educational videos that range from academic lectures to inspirational speeches and everything in between.

Khan Academy

The Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. We're a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education to anyone anywhere.

All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. The Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge.

Over 2600 videos

Our library of videos covers K-12 math, science topics such as biology, chemistry, and physics, and even reaches into the humanities with playlists on finance and history. Each video is a digestible chunk, approximately 10 minutes long, and especially purposed for viewing on the computer.

Screencast-o-matic is a site that allows users to create recordings of their screen activity and audio using a Java-based applet. The application runs in a browser window and is cross-platform compatible. Java 1.5 or higher is required to use the site. The application has most of the features of similar desktop applications, allowing you to capture a portion of the screen (users can choose from 640x480, 800x600, 024x768 or full-screen). In practice the application worked seamlessly with Internet Explorer and Firefox 2.0. The site is also compatible with Safari 2.04 and Opera 9.




Vimeo is a respectful community of creative people who are passionate about sharing the videos they make.

From the beginning, Vimeo was created by filmmakers and video creators who wanted to share their creative work, along with intimate personal moments of their everyday life. As time went on, like-minded people came to the site and built a community of positive, encouraging individuals with a wide range of video interests. We hope that you feel inspired to show us both your creative side as well as your friendly side.


eduCanon is an online learning environment to build and share interactive video lessons. Teachers begin with any Youtube or Vimeo video content (screencasts, Khan Academy, Minute Physics, TED, NOVA, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students. By embedding activities that students engage with as the video progresses the content is segmented into digestible components - increasing student engagement and, through our analysis, informing the next day’s lesson planning.

eduCanon is used in a 1:1 student learning environment. Teachers have used our interface in class, assigned students an eduCanon lesson as homework in a flipped setting, and even asked students to create their own eduCanon lesson as a higher-Bloom's project. eduCanon is flexible to suit the resources and teaching style of your classroom.
