Curious about how I film my instructional videos? Here is the equipment I use and a 360° photo of how I set it all up.

🆓 Stickyboard 2 for iPad is usually $4.99, but today it is free.

Use it to create giant whiteboards that can have sticky notes and drawings. You can manually move notes around the screen, or use Stickyboard 2’s arrange function to line then up in grids, rows, or columns. Boards are saved in the iPad’s gallery and can be exported as an image, PDF, or text. (I do wish you could export as a file that
Stickboard 2 on another device could open and edit.)

Stickyboard 2 does not sync to an account, so notes can be accessed on only on the one device. If you want collaborative or cloud features, you'll want to stick with tools like Google Keep, Padlet, or Lino. Though, the nice thing is that Stickboard 2 does not need Wi-Fi or a login. 👍

Digital sticky notes are great for brainstorms, prewrites, task lists, word sorts, etc.

Search the App Store for Stickyboard 2 or follow this link: tonyv.me/stickyboard2

🎞 The Snagit Chrome extension is being discontinued Aug 31. 😞

Screencastify is a good alternative.

Spelling Star (tonyv.me/spellingstar) is usually 99¢, but right now it FREE for iPad and iPhone! Students can practice spelling words by entering words and recording an audio clue for each. Alternatively, a teacher can create a list and share it with students. Spelling Star generates a unique code that anyone with the Spelling Star app can use to import the list and its clues. Students simply click Import List and enter the code from the teacher. Pretty simple and no accounts or logins are necessary. 👍

Spelling Star goes free periodically. Typically it's free for about 3 days before going back to 99¢. Hopefully were able to nab this while it was free. If not, 99¢ (and half price in volume) is a good deal.

Watch my latest video!
Got a smartphone or tablet? Then you could be drawing your own illustrations, clipart, and avatars! I share examples and show techniques for creating your own artwork, even if you don't consider yourself an artist. My technique is based on tracing photos, so don't worry if you are embarrassed by your drawing skills. The video features the free Adobe Illustrator Draw app for iPad, iPhone, and Android, and the techniques can certainly b...
