I'll start:

WORDLE: is your class particularly interested in a topic? Type some of their comments into a Wordle, and see a visual interpretation of all the words they used.

TEACHER TUBE: Is YouTube blocked at your school? Or worse--did you use it, only to have a less-than-appropriate video pop up as "suggested"? Teacher Tube has classroom-approved videos.

SKITCH: Skitch is a quick and easy photo editing app. Language teachers might find it particularly useful--load up a photo and have the student label everything in it with the correct vocabulary.

WORDPRESS: Do you find your district's web host hard to use? Make your own page using Wordpress. If you require your students to subscribe, they'll receive an email every time you post something new.
