Favorite Things Linky: Apps for a Flipped Classroom

This month, I want to share a few of my favorite apps to use in a flipped classroom! These are my go to apps to use with a whole classroom set of devices or with just a few devices! 
Here is a super quick breakdown of how I use these apps in my classroom! 

1. Plickers: This app is a quick assessment tool. Students have a card that they can turn to show A/B/C/D and it is linked to their name on your device. You ask a question (you can even project it if you want), your students show their card, and you scan your classroom. Their name lights up green if they got it right and red if they got it wrong! So easy!!

2. Chirp: This is a great app to use if you need to send out documents or photos out to your student devices. You simply hit the chirp button (with your sound on and your student device sound on) and BOOM, it is on their device! So handy!!

3. Nearpod: This app is one of my favorites. You can create a lesson in PowerPoint, save as JPEGs and upload as Nearpod slides. The Nearpod presentation that you create is interactive so students can write/draw on the slides. You can also use it as an assessment tool and gather live data. So perfect!!

I can't wait to see what your three favorite... anythings... are this week! Link up with the linky below!
