  • How about these?

    Using Desmos.com, students can model using a free online graphing calculator. Not only that, but the Desmos team is incredible. (also for iPad now)

    For the iPad:

    Use ThingLink (Free) to embed images, text, or video onto an image to explain models

    Use Aurasma to create auras that bring static text to life with videos. Great for differentiation or support

    Use TouchCast to create interactive videos as part of a flipped model or just to have students demonstrate their learning

    Use MyScript Calculator as a freehand calculator. At first, my kids were rough with it, but now use it all the time!

    Use QR codes to “hide” content and have students discover the material. Create a QR code for just about anything.

    Honestly, there are others, but you’ve done a solid job. Just thought I’d add a few!
