Spiral - The fastest way to carry out formative assessments.
John Dalziel's insight:
Spiral - https://spiral.ac/ - is a website that I've posted about before. It does not require any software download and is completely free of charge for Educational Practitioners. Just... 
  - visit the Spiral Website, 
  - Login or Join for Free, 
...you then have access to a wide range of tools, including Quickfire. 
Quickfire is an ideal tool to use during a session to... 
  - introduce,
  - assess,
  - review and
  - reinforce 
...learner knowledge and understanding in learning environments. It provides the educational Practitioner with the responses of all learners in real time. 
Learners' answers are displayed anonymously on a whiteboard to develop confidence and encourage risk-taking. 
Well worth trying out.

The easiest way to take notes from videos. Everything synchronized!
John Dalziel's insight:

VideoNotes is a new tool for taking notes while watching YouTube videos. Load any YouTube video on the left side of the screen and on the right side of the screen VideoNotes gives you a notepad to type on.
Integrating with a Google Drive account, it allows users to share and collaborate on notes, just as they can do with a Google Document.
VideoNotes is an ideal tool for learners to use to take notes, ask questions, and answer questions while watching any "flipped environment" instruction videos (hosted on YouTube).

Learners can...
- share their notes with practitioners, enabling them to plan/structure their next face-to-face session;
- share their notes with peers for either collaborative work and/or peer reviews.
