Cool Tools for Schools
If you haven't heard of Haiku Deck, you can see it action and learn about some cool tools that I absolutely adore all at the same time. Haiku Deck makes presentations simple and beautiful. Use Haiku on desktops, tablets and/or phones. Once you create it, share it online through Facebook, Twitter, Email, Copy link, HTML, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+ and Wordpress. Even export it to a PDF or Powerpoint. Totally wicked!
