In addition to some cool and easy to use assessment tools, I have also shared one more Discovery Education resource. This one relates to STEM. Also there is a new and exciting classroom resource coming from Google. It is called Google Expeditions. I would love to see 6 teachers in one of our buildings sign up for this. Google will come out and work with your students on this. Do we have 6 of you from one building who would love to take your students on an amazing virtual fieldtrip unlike any you have been on before? Last but not least, Google+ is now open to all staff so check out the tutorial and the article about Google+.
Something exciting and new (although I have been keeping an eye on this product for the last 3 years) is a free product called Classflow and it partners with Promethean so it will work on your Promethean boards with your active pens. I love this product. It works with a computer or any mobile device, tablets or smartphones. It allows students to become truly engaged in the lesson. Check out the link below there is a quick video that previews it for you.

To get to this resource follow the following steps.
Log into DE>click on "teacher center" tab>click on Stem connect>click on your grade level band>click on the tab associated to the component of STEM that you wish to work on >science, technology, engineering, or math.
Each tab directs you to the various resources compiled for that particular STEM component.
I have added this additional information about Expeditions due to the interest I have already had after this mornings pose. Click here for more details about Expeditions.
Classflow - This is amazing and best of all it's FREE and is partnered with Promethean.
Currently am working with Joy Weikert to see if we can get this going. Both Joy and I have been following this product for the last few years as it went through various bugs. I will keep you all posted as to whether we can get it going this time. I also have put in a request for some assistance so hopefully Classflow will get back to me.
