Wedding rings on or off: On, but I take them off to work out now.

Y’all. This will blow your students’ minds. It’s addicting!
Aurasma is an amazing app that is changing not only education, but marketing/advertising. (SXSW utilized this during the 2015 season very well. )
**Downfall for classrooms, this works on iPads. If you don’t have iPads on campus, then you’re at a loss. If you are anBYOD campus (bring your own device), this works pretty well. It does work from a laptop or desk top, but takes some work. Best for iPads
Video tutorial This video does a great job stepping you through how to set up and get started.
Ideas for use:
Students can create their own comic strips that can bring their writing to life! Think about using this with new vocabulary, teaching processes, and bringing ideas to life.
This is a great (free) white board that students can do scratch work on.
Easy way to create a clean, professional looking website. This is very simple (I would trust 3rd graders with making one of these!) and provides help to start your own site. What a great way to have students demonstrate their learning!
This free website is terrific for classrooms with iPads. When students join your class/lesson online, they follow your presentation. It keeps everyone on the same page and solves the issue of not having a smart board or projector. No need! You can take your classroom anywhere for a lesson and have them on the same presentation page with you!
One way to use this is to brainstorm about a topic. This tool helps students analyze the text/topic given. Think about using this at the end of a novel study, unit taught, or project. Great for K-12.
**NOTE!!! This doesn’t work on Chromebooks!! eLearningindustry has a great blog post on 5 word cloud generators to try out.
This is basically anREALLY cool slide show. Best use is for vocabulary.
