There is a very wide variety of digital formative assessment tools that can be used for free. I’ve made simple graphics for 15 of them. Most of the tools work with any web browser, so they are great for laptops, computer labs, iPads, Chromebooks, tablets, and smartphones.

My growing collection of Chrome, iPad, Google, Mac, Windows, website & productivity tips...
I love to share tech tips! Sometimes one little piece of information can make a difference for teachers and students. I've found that social media is a great place to share and archive these tips, hints, and ideas.

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.

Go to http://hey-siri.io to search and browse a list of nearly 500 Siri commands. The site is a work in progress, so expect additional commands to be added. After browsing the phrases that Siri recognizes, I noticed some that were new to me, including “Maximum brightness,” “Read my notifications,” and “Random number between 1 and 25.”

It only took me how many years to finally do this?!? I'm excited to not receive all those birthday notifications from Google+!
Answer (1 of 4): The default "Birthdays" calendar does not support notifications, so you're only getting calendar notifications for events you have on your personal calendar (you can adjust those here). You may see birthday reminders from contacts on Google+ as cards in Google Now or as events ...

🎞 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.
