    What are the most useful tools/technology (could include websites, apps, extensions, etc.) that you utilize in your classroom on a regular basis?

    One that I use with my middle school students is Prodigy Math.  It's free for teachers to use and once the diagnostic test is complete, students are able to work at their level to improve math skills.  It includes game-based play so engagement is high and the reporting tools are pretty great as well!  Sign up for your free account at: https://www.prodigygame.com/

    Can't wait to hear what others have to share!

    Thanks Amy, I have never heard of this.  I will definitely be checking it out!

    Edpuzzle is one of my favorites!  You can add questions for students to answer over a video that you have selected for them to watch!  It will grade the multiple choice and true false answers for you and allows you to quickly grade short and extended response questions.  You can save a few videos using the free edition.  There are some videos that already have questions added to them or add your own questions to a video of your choice.

    I've always found https://www.moneyinstructor.com/ to be useful.  Lessons covered are basic money skills, personal finance, business, career and life skills. Some of the items on there are free, but to obtain everything you have to have a paid membership. It really isn't that expensive and I've found it to be worth the cost.
