One of my favorite mobile apps to share with tablet teachers is Explain Everything. This powerful screencasting tool lets students record their thinking using audio, drawing and a variety of features. When I present to teachers on digital storytelling, apps for content area instruction, and must-have tools for the math classroom, Explain Everything is always a favorite. It is a dynamic choice for students and teachers and truly puts the task before the app.
Explain Everything is now available for Chromebooks and teachers and students can try it for free! This is terrific option for schools that have chosen Chromebooks as their one-to-one device. Explain Everything is also a great choice for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) schools since it is now available on all major platforms.

Earlier this year I shared OpenEd, an online educational resource library for K-12 students. OpenEd offers over a million assessments, homework assignments, videos, instructional games and lesson plans for every Common Core Math and English/Language Arts Standard as well as the Next Generation Science Standards. The website has tons of videos to show students that can be used to hook students at the beginning of a lesson or to clarify concepts during a unit of study. This infographic shows off some relatively unknown video publishers with videos in OpenEd’s library.
OpenEd lets teachers assign quizzes and homework to students and automatically grades them, recommending videos and assignments in real-time and personalized based on each student’s progress in learning each Common Core standard. The result is a personalized learning experience for every student.
