Owl Eyes

Owl Eyes is an innovative site that lets teachers create "classrooms" where their students can read and interact w/ texts.  Student's are able to select through a wide variety of literature and then annotate the text.  This is helpful as they can take notes and pickup right where they left off when reading.  Best of all, the teacher tools allows educators to create quizzes to assess how students are doing and they can even track/manage their student accounts.  Educators are using Owl Eyes in a number of different ways such as: differentiating instruction or flipping a classroom.

Channelkit

Channelkit is a new site for curating resources that reminds me of a cross between Pinterest and EduClipper.  This is a nice site that turns any type of media (i.e. file, links, images) into digital cards that can then be turned into a channel.  These "channels" can then be made public/private and shared w/ others via unique URL.

GrammarFlip

GrammarFlip is an excellent site for students looking to practice and work on their Grammar.  The way this works is that a student watches a educational video on grammar (i.e. parts of a sentence, punctuation, etc) and then completes interactive exercises.  Not only is this ideal for self paced learning, but this can help educators differentiate instruction as well as "flip" a classroom/lesson.  Best of all are the detailed reports that gives real-time assessment for teachers.

WriteReader

WriteReader is an excellent learning tool for grades K-4 to help students w/ their Reading and Writing.  This is done through a educational portal where educators can create an account and then share a unique code for students.  Also, this portal allows for teachers to manage/monitor student accounts and track progress.  Best of all, there are lots of resources for educators such as: tutorials, lesson plans aligned to Common Core Standards, and more.

WriteReader also allows students to create digital books in a safe environment (i.e. comment moderation, Google Safe image search, etc) and share them w/ others.
