The "Beta" List…
1) Chrome Jam
Simple, collaborative music making tool. Awesome for music class, or for your family.
Alternative to the pricey Photoshop. This little program offers a great array of photo editing options. Because it is open source, it can be a little buggy, but well worth the $700 you will keep in your pocket by not buying Photoshop.
The mention of this organization tool is mostly because it is fun and functionally intriguing. I use this tool to have students visually organize and represent their web research.
This is an awesome tool for encouraging students to be broadcasters and experts on their subjects. It allows you to collect and archive broadcasts as podcasts to access later.
The jury is still out on this little dongle. I recently purchased one for home, but have yet to use it in the classroom. I am convinced that it could be a gamechanger, especially at only $35.
