Something Purple, Working for a Burger, Cool Video Creator, and 2048 - A Very Random Post

Today's post is about updates, tools or sites that I found interesting as I was searching the web.  Perhaps you will find something of interest to you or your students.  Check these out.

#1 Google Forms is getting an update and it looks pretty sweet! The new icon is purple.
Read all about it here.

#2 Salaries in Real Time
How many hours do you need to work in order to buy a burger?

11 minutes and 5 seconds until my next burger. :)

#3 Biteable - a simple video animation maker
This looks like a very useful tool for creating a tutorial or a visually animated infographic. 

#4 2048 GameI often spend time in study hall or in the lunch room to see what students are choosing to do on their Chromebooks during their free time. This tile game has become quite popular among our high school students. The game is simple, move like numbers together to add the tiles up from 2 - 4 - 8 -16 -32 -64 -128 - 256 - 512 - 1024 - 2048.  Although the concept is simple, to win the game is still a challenge as the boxes fill up and soon you are without a move. 
As far as games go, this one is right up my alley. I love anything mathematical.
