30hands Pro: Create & Show What You Know

Screenshot 2017-05-10 23.51.55.png

30hands Storyteller Pro is the easiest way to tell a story, explain a concept or flip a classroom. Create a multimedia presentation in minutes and publish it as a video to share. We designed the tool to be simple and fast, so it takes backseat to learning and expression. In a single class period, students can complete a video activity. Mapping these activities to a longer project helps students make PBL projects authentic and fun.

Cost – $4.99 (Canadian price)

Kahoot!

Screenshot 2017-05-10 23.48.45

Kahoot! is a free game-based learning platform that makes learning awesome. The best way to play Kahoot! is in a group, like your classroom. Questions appear on a shared screen and you answer on your own device.  Many games (we call them ‘kahoots’) are designed as quizzes with multiple choice questions. Another type is a Jumble game where you have to put answers in the correct order – stay focused, precision is king here! But the faster you answer, the more points you can get. Discuss and celebrate together – it’s going to be loud!

Cost – FREE
