MathDisk

MathDisk is an innovative new site/app (Android/iOS) that can be used for many different aspects of Math (i.e. Algebra, Geometry, graphing calculator, Calculus, and more).  The this works is by creating worksheets on the easy to use graphic designer that resembles a draw program w/ lots of tools.  However, it's even easier to use on a mobile device w/ a touch screen interface.  A finished project can then be embedded into a site or blog and shared w/ others via email or social networks.

SpellingCity

SpellingCity w/out a doubt is my favorite site for Spelling and Vocabulary.  This is a great site w/ educational portal that allows educators to create word lists that can be incorporated into educational games.  These games are not only fun but highly engaging and help students learn their "words".  Also, an educator can track students, find an abundance of resources/videos, and even use it for mobile learning w/ a free mobile app  (iOS/Android).

GoClass

GoClass is a fantastic learning tool for the mobile classroom.  This is a free site/web app that allows educators to conduct lessons on student's mobile devices (iOS/Android), track their learning and progress, and so much more.  The way this works is an educator creates an account through the GoClass web portal and then starts creating their multimedia digital lessons that get shared w/ students when they join a session.  Best of all, GoClass records all lessons that are being conducted and educators can assess students in real-time to differentiate instruction as well share an interactive whiteboard for learning.
