There are four great resources you should check out right now:

Screenshot 2015-06-30 at 11.26.11 AMScreencast-O-Matic – This allows for easy recording of your screen.  When you are finished with the videos, upload them to Google Drive, and share them with your students.  This is great tool to aid in comprehension and ease teacher frustration.  I use it in web development to demonstrate concepts and allow students to work at their own pace.  There is also an iPad version.

Screenshot 2015-06-30 at 11.27.44 AMPollEverywhere – Give students a new way to respond instead of raising their hand.  Create a question or ask for feedback while you are presenting and students are given the freedom to type their questions and hear their response.
