Common Core State Standards calls for students to be able to ask and answer questions (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.1). This app provides students with the vehicle to do this first through pictures, then with text. Using these as models you and/or your students can then create custom ask and answer situations. Take a photograph or cut and paste text from any piece of literature, math, science, or social studies text for students to ask and answer questio...

From Technology in classrooms: 5 tools for the new year: http://www.teachhub.com/technology-classroom-5-tools-new-year

In a world where mashed lesson plans and flipped classrooms are becoming de rigeur, Frolyc stands out. You can create lesson plans from scratch, differentiate them to varied student needs, make them available via iPad to specific students in your classroom, and even search their database for existing lesson plans close to your need. Teachers build the lessons in their dashboard and push them out to students on the iPad-based Activity Spot. These two launchpads are synched, providing teachers with constant updates on student progress. I've tried a few others like this, but this is the most intuitive I've used. It helps that the creators provide video assistance every step of the way.

How to use it in the classroom: I especially like it for the flipped classroom. You can push videos to students differentiated for their unique needs, share quick assessments to determine understanding, and ask students to provide evidence of their understanding—a lot of depth for a free tool.
Create. Publish. Inspire!

I wanted to share that I found this cool mobile tool for special needs children. Wish I had it when my child was in elementary school. www.SmartedPad.com it is either an android tablet or android software that you download to your android tablet. It comes with over 100 apps specifically chosen to help children with special needs. The apps are categorized by IEP headings: behavior, articulation, reading etc.
Two things are really great.
1) I roster my child
2) I can then assign him only the apps I, his therapist , and teacher agree that are most beneficial to him. So when he logs in he only sees those apps and is not distracted by things he is not ready for, or long ago conquered.
The app keeps track of therapy sessions and IEPS and all results can be emailed to anyone. This makes true collabotration among parent, school and therapist. Score! #specialneeds
