It's the end of the school year and you have already begun looking for that next “new and exciting” thing to bring into your classroom for next year. Your principal comes to you and say “we have some extra money in the budget … what should we do with it?”
Does this sound familiar?
- Perhaps you are looking for an application that allows you to easily create self-graded quizzes in a way that Google Forms can't.
- Perhaps you are looking to create an environment where every student has an interactive whiteboard at their fingertips on their devices.
- Perhaps you are in need of a way to take an image, or map, or other graphic design and update it a bit with interactive features.
The answer to all of these inquiries is pretty simple … BookWidgets!
