Flip Snack for Creating Flip Books

Flip Snack is a free site to quickly and easily create an online flip book from any pdf or collection of jpeg images. 

One way that a teacher could use Flip Snack with their students is to have the students create a Google presentation and then download that presentation as a pdf. 

Flip Snack will then easily turn that presentation into a flipbook.

Here is an example I made from a Google Presentation that I downloaded as a pdf:

Here is another example of pictures from my mobile phone:

eQuiz Show

eQuiz Show lets a person make a Jeopardy style game. There is no account needed and a game is retrieved through saving the URL.

I created a game in just a few minutes. Just enter a category and then 5 questions and answers. There is room for up to 5 categories. 

When launching the game, you decide how many teams are playing and eQuiz Show will keep track of the points for each team.

Editing the game is simple and quick.  All that is needed is the URL that you save and a password that you set. 

Here is a video tutorial:

Check out my Ed Tech game by clicking here.  Use the game with your class if you would like.

I highly recommend using eQuiz Show for reviewing content and engaging your students.  It is also a great tool to use gamification in your lessons or units.
