PiktoChart - piktochart.com PiktoChart is one of the first tools (currently in beta) that allows users to create their own infographics. An infographic is basically a visual representation of data, sometimes displayed as a poster or online graphic. PiktoChart allows account holders to select a theme and then customize it with their own content while also having a set of text boxes and graphics to choose from. The service works a lot like Glogster, with a drag-anddrop interface. For anyone wanting students to create posters or infographics, this is a great tool! PiktoChart Demo

Tag My Doc - tagmydoc.com Tag My Doc is a quick, easy to use document sharing service. In an instant, users can upload a document and receive a shortened link to share, a QR code to post and share for smartphone users, and the ability to instantly email the document - no account or log-in required! However, signing up for an account gives users even more options, including the ability to save documents to folders and password protect individual documents. This is a great service for quickly sharing documents on the fly. Tag My Doc Tour

Present.Me Present.me is an online presentation tool that allows users to combine their presentation slides with recordings from a webcam. This is a great tool to use when you’ll be away from school but still want to explain an assignment or lecture to a class. It’s also a great tool for presenting from a distance. Present.me also works as an alternative to PowerPoints for student assessment, allowing students to present and explain their understanding of a topic. Sample Present.Me Presentation
