10 Resources for my math classroom

Audioboo

"Since 2009, we've believed that voice communicates so much more than other medium. Schools, universities, activists and enthusiasts use us for podcasting and sharing information on just about every topic. And the ease of sharing thoughts through voice has led to us gaining a large and friendly visually impaired community. So, just record audio on your mobile or upload it on our website: we'll grab your location, you add a title and photo. And then you can seamlessly share audio on Facebook, Twitter and more. (And, of course, on Audioboo)."

Read the Words

"Convert any document with text into a speech recording; create pre-recorded messages for telephone response systems; teach pronunciation to kids; use it as an English/Spanish/French learning tool; add images and music to convert your audio into a video."

Pie Color

"A basic, user-friendly tool for creating colorful pie charts"

Scribble Maps

"Easily draw on maps and then share them with friends, completely for Free! Simple enough to be used by children, but powerful enough to be used by GIS professionals - Scribble Maps is the easiest way to draw and share maps with friends."

Goofram
