This past week we had quite a few notable educational tools added to edshelf by some impressive teams. Experienced entrepreneurs, former classroom teachers, academic researchers, and game designers. We are thankful all decided to contribute their talents to improving student outcomes and creativity. For this week’s highlights, we selected some tools that help students build, and some tools by people who know what they are building.
- MixBit – Created by the founders of YouTube, you can create, edit, and remix videos using this iPhone app.
- Animoby – If video isn’t your thing, make presentations on your iPad with your voice and drawings made by touching the screen.
- Joomag – Or put together interactive magazines, papers, and books with this web-based publication editor.
- I Can Alphabetics – With the help of leading dyslexia researchers, this iOS app helps young children learn the shapes & sounds of the alphabet.
- DragonBox Algebra 12+ – Created by a high school teacher, this educational iOS game covers algebra for students 12 and over.
