Symbaloo Lessonplans

Symbaloo Lessonplans is the new feature from the ultra-popular bookmarking site for education, SymbalooEDU.  This lesson plan creator lets educators create interactive lessons similar to the game
based style that is found in most mobile app games.  The lessons can contain text, video, audio, interactive elements, and even questions/quizzes/polls.  Best of all, the teacher gets real-time data for assessing students that helps them differentiate instruction.  This is great for students so they can learn at their own pace and level.
