Adobe Spark is a FREE and excellent way to record videos. Easy for students to learn!
Blooket By far, this is the best FREE website to create short quizes for the students. It's so fun, I even play it with my students!
Book Creator Want to create an engaging ebook to share content with your students for FREE? Or have your students create their own ebook for FREE? This is the place!
Edpuzzle This site synchs well with Google Classroom and YouTube. It keeps students engaged in the video you're presenting. You can even edit so they only see the parts you want them to see! NVUSD accounts access it for FREE.
Google Classroom is perfect for 3rd grade and up. Keep all your students' assignments and announcements in one place. My favorite feature is "reuse rubric". I assign all assignments with rubrics.
Google Forms is a great way to have students check in with you about their SEL, take a quiz, or even a survey. They are also great as exit tickets! NVUSD accounts access it for FREE.
Google Sites is the most simple way to allow students to showcase their learning with their own personal flair. I recommend 3rd grade and above for this. I have my students share their link to allow me as a collaborator. This way I can help "fix" things they need. It's also great a great way to differentiate for students. NVUSD accounts access it for FREE.
Pear Deck keeps kids engaged during a "hands on" lesson. It pairs perfectly with Google Slides and you can see students' responses in real time. The vocabulary feature can be fun if scaffolded very well. NVUSD accounts access it for FREE.
Piktochart is a site to create your own FREE infographics. I use this site to create entry events for units or topics. Almost everything I put on the infographic is clickable to a video, picture, pre-test, or fact. Note: I paid for the subscription because I use it all the time.
Screenflow is the most expensive product on my list. Because I make videos all the time, and the features I need are not on iMovie, Adobe Spark, or Screencastify, I chose to purchase. This product is for those who need a little "extra" when editing. And there is a lot of great Broll, music, sound effects, photos, overlays, transitions, and you can add your own fonts too!
