AR Flashcards Addition

AR Flashcards Addition is the new innovative way for students to work on their addition skills on their mobile iOS devices.  The way this works is a user goes to the AR Flashcard website prints out the free flashcard, and then points their iOS device at the card to render beautiful 3D numbers and animals to form an equation.  A student can then solve the equation w/in the app and even take timed quizzes.

Monster Math 2

Monster Math 2 is the excellent new iOS game by Makkaji.  Like the first game, this game is designed for grades K-5 and is aligned to Common Core Standards.  It follows the familiar platform style game play where students solve Math equations (i.e. subtraction, addition, etc) while defeating monsters and unlocking 4 different magical lands.  Also, Monster Math tracks students progress, generates detailed reports, and allows users to choose which areas they want to focus on.

Brainscape is an excellent free iOS app/site for flashcards.  Brainscape's innovative "smart" flashcards works in timed intervals that a user rates on a scale of 1 to 5.  Brainscape then used an adaptive learning algorithm to differentiate instruction and display the flashcards that need more focus on.  This is a great way to learn difficult subjects and break down difficult concepts.

Buncee for Valentine's Day

Buncee is one of my all-time favorite easy-to-use Web 2.0 sites/apps for education.  This site w/ educational portal allows a user to create anything they can think of on a digital canvas (i.e. presentation, eCard, greeting, story, and more).  These beautiful looking projects can contain any type of media, from video, audio, text, clip art, etc, and can be embedded into a site or blog.  Finally, educational portal allows educators to manage/track student accounts, and even comment on them in a safe environment.  Teachers are using Buncee for Project Based Learning, to "flip" a lesson, for digital storytelling, and much much more.

Below is a Valentine's Day example...
