FluencyFinder 3.0

FluencyFinder the educational mobile (iOS/Android) app for assessing Reading & Comprehension has just released their biggest and most robust update yet.  Before educators need to choose between 1 of 6 passages (1st thru 8th grade) to assess a student's Reading level.  This was a bit limit for those that needed to use required reading material or those districts that uses Accelerated Reader, AIMS, etc.  However, now educators can create, delete, and upload any Reading/Comprehension passage & questions they want to assess their students with.  This makes it a great way to organize Reading lists for a student or class, and assess material relevant to that class.  Also, a user can switch between online use and mobile use as their data gets backed up seamlessly between the two.

I highly recommend checking out FluencyFinder by clicking here!!!

30hands

30hands is the excellent and free easy to use iOS app that educators are using to integrate technology into their classroom.  This is being used in education in many different ways such as "flipping" a lesson, project based learning, and of course, digital storytelling.  The drag-n-drop interface makes it seamless to organize slides, and add pictures and video.  Best of all a user can record their own narration to tell a story and then upload it to the safe educational 30hands cloud (aka learning community).  There is even a inexpensive 30hands Pro app which unlocks all the features in the free app such as: importing video clips, Google Drive/Drop Box integration, and more.

Zookazam

Zookazam is one of my favorite free iOS apps for the Science classroom.  This innovative app has students interacting w/ animals, bugs, and more through Augmented Reality.  For example, all a user has to do is print out a target and then point their iOS device at it to watch as dinosaurs come to life in stunning 3D.  This is a great way to integrate technology into the classroom and WOW your students.
