Show What You Know Using Web & Mobile Apps [Infographic]
Nowadays teachers and students have a variety of ways to show what they know and to express themselves. Take a look at some of the hottest online and mobile tools for showing, explaining, and retelling in my infographic, "Show What You Know Using Web & Mobile Apps." These web and iPad apps can turn students into teachers and teachers into super-teachers! Furthermore, most of the apps listed in the infographic are free of charge.

New additions include Chatterpix Kids, RecorderHQ, Vocaroo (to replace the defunct RecordMP3), Shadow Puppet Edu, Pixlr, TeleStory, Toontastic (now that it's 100% free), and Purpose Games.

Eighty percent of household members spend at least one hour each day (many spend considerably more time) on our website. Three of these seven hours each week need to be spent on one of several websites that act as sort of “virtual classrooms” — students and their family members enter them with a password and we can check online to see how much time they have spent on them.
