FlipQuiz™ was created to provide educators with a quick way to create your own gameshow-style boards for test reviews in the classroom. Traditionally, these are created tediously, using poster board, chalkboards, or dry-erase markers on overhead slides. The review questions themselves are usually written on a separate sheet of paper.
With FlipQuiz™, questions are displayed on-screen and boards are saved for later use. Combined with a well-designed board, students are more likely to be interested and stay engaged with the test review process.
Text response questions were the very first to be released by Xorro, and have always been the quickest to impress. However, their usefulness in large groups has been limited due to the difficulty of instantly extracting value from high volumes of text responses.
This week we release the long-awaited word cloud visualisation for text response questions.
Wordclouds are familiar visualisations of keywords hidden in masses of text. They've been in common use for a few years. Now, Xorro-Q makes it possible to create a wordcloud on the fly from a live audience's text contributions to your question.
Wiki Summarizer is a site that allows you to search Wikipedia, have articles summarized by key points, and provides lists of articles that are related to your original search. Wiki Summarizer also offers expandable webs of related articles. For example, I searched for "Maine" and a web of related terms was created. Clicking on the "+" symbol next to each term opens a new element of the web. The final summary aspect of the Wiki Summarizer is the hyperlinked word clouds for every Wikipedia article. You can click on any word in the word clouds to jump to the corresponding Wikipedia article.

"I became a big fan of Planet Nutshell the first time that I saw their series of videos on Internet Safety. They've also produced great videos on Financial Aid, Climate Science, Health, Mathematics, and Physics. This morning I was exploring the Planet Nutshell website and notice that all of the education videos are now available in one section of the site labeled Teacher Library."

Ken Peterson's insight:
Fiverr is a hot new resource that is catching on like wildfire with innovative educators. But it shouldn’t end there. Back-to-school is a great time to think about what this could mean for your students! If you don’t know, Fiverr is known as, “The place for people to offer services starting at $5.” The services (called Gigs) are generally provided by freelancers who love what they do and want to share and spread their passion. - See more at: http://www.techlearning.com/Default.aspx?tabid=67&entryid=8221#sthash.15ALgRDX.dpuf
