ipadioCreating free apps for iPhone and AndroidRecords you when speaking (a foreign language)My students record themselves every time they retell a story or answer 'interview' questions.
They are encouraged to listen to their recordings (while looking at the original story) and try to notice problems (and successes).
They have to submit their best recording every two weeks for me to evaluate and give formative feedback on.
At the end of every term they are asked to compare their first recording with their last.
They maintain an e-portfolio of Spoken (and written) English by automating cross-posting to their WordPress e-portfolios.
I encourage them to separate pronunciation, repetition and reading aloud by using audioboo for these aspects. These recordings are also automatically cross-posted to their WordPress e-portfolios.
I follow their ipadio and audioboo RSS streams on Feedly and try to listen to as many as possible while commuting.

LectureToolshttp://www.lecturetools.comA Web-Based Interactive Presentation Tool for instructors that struggle to keep students attentive and engaged.Instructors can upload their presentations, add interactive polls and publish content for students to access. During class, you can present with the tool to engage your audience. Students can type notes next to the slides being presented, answer polls, ask questions and create study guides.
Mozilla Popcorn MakerSynthesis/Evaluation media editor that allows you to add pop up content & easily remix other contentJust starting the earliest experiments w students; the possibilities are ridiculously exciting though
Nearpodunderstanding analyzing applying evaluatingnearpod.comBasic: allows you to present information to students individual screens (ppt, diagrams) and infuse m/c or open ended questions for real time feedback Intermediate: Upload photos to it and have them label/annotate pics or do math problems out (energy transformations, force diagrams). Advanced: Students can predict what will happen and then push out other students completed diagrams/math problems for analysis by the class. Find the flaws, keep what is great. I love this tool, but it is not useful if you are simply using it to do direct instruction. The power with it is the ability to see students annotations and push out other student's work to each other's screens.

Another teacher POV: I agree with basic and intermediate review above, but disagree that this can't be used for direct, advanced instruction. Now there is PDF viewer to upload more text. You could always upload longer docs and ppt slides, anyways. There are ways to interact with deeper content and use for direct instruction. It takes practice but poss. and highly useful in practicing planning for self- paced lessons. Agreed best for lighter content, but that is also a limitation of iPad/ screen itself.
I use it for student modeling/diagraming. We predict/share/discuss. I have done: cycles, energy transformations, force diagrams, gas laws. "Draw a diagram showing what air looks like at a molecular level" Models "make the invisible, visible" Then we look at some examples of student work and record what they are thinking. Then we revisit the concept after we tested the ideas as a class. Great NGSS modeling tool

Another POV:
Highly useful. Very engaging. Very fun. Teach 4th grade and I use this to introduce units, to do guided research, and sometimes deeper content. Did Sci Method unit on here that was highly successful - learned and applied all steps to science fair project. Did Open House on here for my parents and it was great for survey results. My kids even used it in a PBL unit concerning natural resources and environ. to teach other students. The best thing on market.
