OneNote

Not to talk too big a game, but OneNote is one of the most useful programs in existence. It comes preloaded on the Microsoft Surface and can be downloaded for free on iOS, Android and MacOS. In the classroom teachers can use it for many engaging

Makey Makey

Makey Makey is an invention kit. It is great for kids in a classroom because it allows them to create things and experiment with conductive materials. I also like that it has already been coded for the user, so you can focus on the creation side
