From my blog post. mQlicker is a free, online student response system. A huge number of feedback/response options available including multiple choice, multiple select, YouTube and embedded video. Results processed as grpahs/charts and can be downloaded to Excel. Great "live" integration options within PowerPoint.
Does not give student feedback/self marking quizzes.
Amazing help and support features available.
Let's take a look at the three major areas we've improved upon in the latest versions of Fuse on iOS and Android. Now while shooting video you can pause a recording. Fuse now opens to the camera view.
Fuse has made some changes to its App on Android and iOS. Was my recording App of choice before Screenr and Screencastomatic.
Wonder if you can save to SWF format on iOS?
Another Quiz style, interactive polling system but with a big difference. Teacher creates the classes through the website and assigns names.
Download the App on iphone, pad or android device
Each student is given an answer card (QR code style) which has four possible answers: A, B, C and D.
Teacher gives out the question eg on a PowerPoint. Students choose an answer and hold up their card (in the correct rotation).
Either through web cam or scanning with the camera, each score is automatically recorded and stored in a chart.
Looks very promising
Here is a great video showing it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeUge9K7SGk
Free online background remover to remove the background from any image or photo. The fastest way to remove backgrounds online.
WHAT A BRILLIANT TOOL! Lost count of all the times I have had to go into Adobe Fireworks to remove backgrounds.
Not only does this do it for you but you also get the chance to edit and the design and make further changes.
Best spot for a while!
Make a video online for free with wideo! Create demo videos, bring animated e-cards to life, create educational videos and lots more.
Looks incredibly simple judging by the video: http://vimeo.com/66913657 ;
Choice of templates to use and good embedding potential.
Boolify provides learners with a manipulative mental model for Boolean Web Search contruction. It can be used to teach and learn Boolean Web Search in a variety of settings.
A brilliant site or explaining advanced search engines. Was thinking it might now prove rather useful for the new KS2 Computing Curriculum needs?
Dont often Scoop Subject specific features but these are utterly astonishing. High quality simulations for Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geology and Maths.
Amazing variety and variation within simulations. Models are chosen well eg Conservation of Energy from KE to PE is based on a skateboarder on a ramp. Options for this include energy transfer to Heat via friction.
The electrical circuits model also allows you to explore pupil misconceptions with ideas such as pd and current
Many simulations also include graphical analysis and you can choose a range of ways to present the information
Blendspace allows educators to blend their classroom with digital content.
Interesting idea here. Create mini lessons based on what appears to be links to videos, websites, presentations, images, uploading your own files and quizzes.
Could work well for cover lessons and perhaps be added to VLEs.
Claims to make a 5 minute lesson is intriguing.....Assuming it does not mean the lesson lasts 5 minutes!
Watch their video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQ_Mg3lSoew
This is amazing AND free. Download the software. Parapal Hotspots allows you to take any jpeg image and add interactive regions so students can learn new terms and then test themselves.
SCORM compliant so works brilliantly in Moodle for self marking. This is a brilliant tool and so incredibly simple.
How can it be free!
The Persuasion Map is an interactive graphic organizer that enables students to map out their arguments for a persuasive essay or debate.
Great for planning for all types of persuasive writing from Science to English. Works really well for the Essay question in CamNats ICT
Easily draw a Venn diagram with Lucidchart's easy and online Venn diagram maker. Within moments, you can create a beautiful Venn diagram for download or online sharing.
This is an awesome package and the SHARING feature is amazing. Free account has some limitations to it in terms of objects you can add and size.
Can also make mind maps too (although it says you cant on free package)

Flipped and Blended Interactive Video Learning Platform. Slightly different model in that it sits in a booklet/lesson package format with video on one side and features on the other.
Similar features to the others. Choose when you want to have question. Choice of free text or multiple choice. Varied text formatting. Add answer and explanations. Insert images and embed HTML.
Cropping of video is good and you can embed publically on various networking sources as well as iframes - Mahara!!!
No tracking of results unless you take up a paid account.
Lots of potential. Simply set the date in the future, write your message and add your email address then Submit.
Lots of amazing uses eg as part of INSET training with staff to get them to set goals they would like to achieve after a certain time (Letter to self). Could be used by students for goal setting in a subject or a time capsule for Year 7 students on entry!
Glean Comparison Search helps people compare search results for different opinions to reduce confirmation bias.
This is great! Enter a word you want to search for then add in additional keywords to narrow down the search.
Brilliant for comparing different opinions on sites etc
Given a nod about this by MFL Department.
Learn, memorise and testing site. Great for MFL but could be done in any other subject.
The teacher creates a course and on it puts a number of terms and their translation. If doing simple vocab, you can select from items already added. You also have the option of recording audio to support the learning. You can add additional columns with pictures and text attributes (eg noun, feminine). You can also add extra levels..
Once done you open up to the students. The student learns the word (planting). You read/listen to each term and the translation. You can also choose a mem to see the word used in context (these are help tips suggested by others and could be video, picture, sound etc) As they learn they will be given tasks that include a mixture of memorising the words and testing their learning of it. There are a range of testing questions used.
You can save and exit at any time and go back to where you were
Tests are done against the clock. If you create groups, students can compete against each other and see their scores in a scoreboard table.
Huge potential and opportunities.. Go and look at all the different features that can be done. I really like the Learn to use a Rubiks Cube course which combines videos and a range of quiz types..
A short introduction to setting up a seating plan, adding a bespoke class, uploading a spreadsheet and getting started with classcharts.com.
Super, clear presentation from Mark Anderson.Definitely has lots of potential especially if you can download the spreadsheet from SIMS!
Only minor issue is if you have rounded tables :o)
Whole load of additional features too
Convert PDF to Word. Online PDF to Word converter. Best one I know, even converts text in tables into perfect table format.
Enter your email address for it to be emailed to you or download online.
You can convert a PDF to Word in Office 2013 right click on PDF then select Open In then select Word 2013
Does a decent job (via @cgood77)
PLEASE NOTE THE FREE VERSION ONLY DOES 2 PAGES!
The "latest" in the welcome addition of student response systems and well deserves its place at the top table with Kahoot and Socrative.
Can be used in many modes such as interactive, "real time" answering with students. Teacher asks question or puts question on board and students reply with a response. I particularly like the Draw Response option where you can draw a reply (great with tablets). http://snapguide.com/guides/run-quick-assessments-on-infuselearning/ shows you more
I have used Infuse mainly in Assessment mode by writing a series of questions and sending out the link and ID to students (bit like Kahoot but not real time). GREAT range of questions from multiple choice, multiple select, sort in order, Likert and free text. You can also add in images.
As with Socrative you can creates pupil classes and data sent back to you can be downloaded as a spreadsheet.
This is a truly amazing piece of free software. You will need to create a username and password to save work (unless you already have a Persona account one from Mozilla's Open Badges work).
Basically, it allows you to upload either a YouTube Video, SoundCloud sound file, Vimeo video or still image and via layers:
Add text, images, popups, Googlemaps, links, create pauses, crop the original video and other things too.
All of these can be dragged to begin at different stages of the video.
Once saved, you can embed the code in a Mahara or Moodle page. You can also send a link to your completed "popcorn" that others can see (good for Show My Homework links then)
Am sure there is lots more here. lets hope it is around for a while
Brainrush have just added a "bucket" template to their list of quiz generators (now numbering two).
You can have 2 (or more) labeled buckets. Players drag and drop text, image and/or audio into the correct bucket.
Super for categorisation tasks eg food groups, rock types or parts of speech etc. Lots of Science opportunities and I bet some MFL ones too.
Here is one I made earlier for GCSE Physics Radiation
BrainRush have now put in a new Ordering/Spelling option for their quizzes. This works really well and is not too hard to follow. A super explanatory video is available here: http://youtu.be/vb0kjTxpnNc and my attempt at word equations for chemistry is here: http://www.brainrush.com/lesson/play/chemical-word-equations
UPDATE: BrainRush have removed the need to create an account to play. You do go through a warning message but nothing else - hurrah!
