Remind101- Allows teachers to send reminders to students and parents.  It is free and most parents love getting these reminders via text or email.

Class Dojo- An online reward system for your students.  This is a great classroom management tool.

ClassCharts- Think of online seating charts on steroids.  This tool allows you to create seating charts, keep track of student behaviors and collaborate with your colleagues.

Stich.It- Make those long long URLs that students CANNOT EVER GET RIGHT into short easy ones.

SpringPad- Do you forget everything like I do?  Get SpringPad, the tool that makes any device your mobile assistant.  Just jot down quick notes and SpringPad will save them and update them automatically.  Want to buy something for your classroom? Save it in SpringPad and it will automatically notify you of any price drops or sales.

myLinkCloud- Put your favorite class links into clouds and then share them with students.  Clouds can be customized to visually represent the links inside!

KeepVid- Want to show a video in your classroom?  Don't stream it prior to your class and then play it with ease without buffering or freezing.

Google Forms- Don't forget about Google forms!  I can't say enough about how much I love this application.  You can use it to create surveys, quizzes, and to store parent contact information etc.  It is built right into your school email and is very easy to use.

edWeb- edWeb is a professional online learning community.  They offer webinars every week and if you create a username and password, you can access recordings of past webinars.  They always have presentations on the latest and greatest technology trends in education. Timer- Who doesn't need a virtual timer?  Project this with your projector and never worry about running out of time again!
