  5. 5. Three Ring • 2. Three Ring- Three Ring is a tablet and mobile app that allows teachers and students to snap a photo of written work, capture video of presentations, or record audio of student discussions -- all for the sake of supporting classroom organization. I imagine using this for my SLO documentation as well as student portfolios. Three Ring Overview Video. * Can’t upload large videos

  7. 7. eduClipper • 3. eduClipper- A nicely designed web-based tool that teachers and students can use to collect materials--from digital text, video or other files on their computer, Google Drive, or even embedded code from other presentations or websites--and then share them in nifty Pinterest-like collections. This would be perfect for student portfolios. eduClipper Overview Video. *Works best in Chrome *Great for Student Portfolios *Can upload large files *Organize content specific for school

  9. 9. Ponder • 4. Ponder- A “micro-reading response” tool that allows students and teachers to engage with each other when reading articles. Teachers can create a reading list for their class, selecting the sources (NY Times,, etc.) from which students can access articles. Teachers then make a list of topics that students can use to tag articles relevant to their current coursework. This would be great for close-reading with online text. Ponder Video. *Must be approved for an account-this may take a couple of days *Requires students to create an account for each class using an email address
