IOS Apps:

TextExtractor Scanner - (Free - Norm. $2.99) Scan PDF and Extract Text as Word Documents. This scanner works pretty good for an OCR scanner.  You may be wondering... why would Noel be recommending something that scans to a Word Doc, when he uses Google Docs.  Well, this will scan to a straight text file, that you can easily use in Google Docs or other word processors too. I have tried it with several Docs and it really does a nice job. 

There are tons of photo apps, but this one looked like it might be worth having - Free today (Reg. $4.99). Laminar Pro http://appsaga.com/best-free-apps-day-oct-29-laminar-pro-bonza-word-puzzle-gloomlogue/


Some great web tools, offers and sites:


Use Scholastic's Interactive Weather Maker to help students learn about rain and snow: (nice for the younger grades.) 

Need clickers and more interactions with students....  I like Socrative... and it's free. Access More Than 1,000 Socrative Quizzes Sorted by Subject via Free Technology for Teachers

Wideo, WeVideo, and Magisto - Three Good Tools for Creating Videos Online.


I have used this one... and it's worth looking at... and it's fun!  You can upload directly to your YouTube account too.  Here is one I did a couple years ago.
