ShowMe

ShowMe is an excellent free mobile (iOS, Android, Chromebook) app for creating beautiful looking screencasts, or "flipping" a lesson/classroom.  ShowMe provides an interactive whiteboard to allow educators or students to create lessons, presentations, etc. while recording and narrating their own voiceover.  Best of all, a finished product can then be shared online in ShowMe's educational community where other users can find, share, or embed, other screencasts.

The Globe of Extremes

The Globe of Extremes is a very cool interactive globe that has "hot keys"/plots w/ interesting facts about extreme information in the world.  For example, if you wanted to learn about what the highest populated city is away from an ocean or the lowest point below sea level is on earth, this would be the place to go.

Noisy Book

Noisy Book is a wonderful new innovative iOS app for kids.  Noisy Book works by supplying sound effects to a book by processing what is read (i.e. adding a horn honking to a car).  Also, a user can create their own story and add sound effects for a fun way to incorporate digital storytelling.  Best of all, Noisy Book understands what is being read and creates an educational quiz for the main parts of a story to gauge understanding/comprehension.
