1.2. Animoto: www.animoto.com - This tool is geared toward making videos. It is a great way to combine videos and photos into a unique presentation. You are able to choose your style, media, and text. Then you produce and share.

1.3. Creedoo: www.creedoo.com - Creedoo is designed for the presenter to interact with the audience. Creedoo allows you to ask questions/poll the audience and shows their answers in real time. The website also allows you to use back slides. Theses slides stay in the back of the presentation unless your audience has additional questions or additional information is needed. If the presenter needs the back slides, they just click the slide and the presentation moves to that slide.

2. Communication

2.1. Remind: https://www.remind.com - Remind is a great way to keep in contact with parents and students. I use it often in my classroom to remind students and parents of upcoming events and it is a great way to keep in constant contact with parents about student behavior or things happening in the classroom, without giving out the teachers phone number. The teacher is able to send individual messages, not just whole group.

2.2. Facebook: www.facebook.com - Facebook allows the user to upload events, pictures, and other information that may be important to parents and students. Having a class Facebook allows teachers another outlet of communication through messenger and also through pictures and posts the teachers and students add to keep parents informed.
