Storybird is a great site for artists and writers alike. As a writer, you choose from original art and write your story around this art. You can write a children's book or a full-novel chapter by chapter. You can gain followers as people read your stories. As an artist, you can submit your art work to be chosen for use on Storybird. This site would be a fantastic way to create authentic storytelling for students of all ages. Finished books can be published and can be printed as paperbacks or hardback books.

Formative is a great looking new formative assessment tool that allows teachers to transform current assignments or handouts into gradeable, trackable, formative assessments. It looks pretty easy to use, and unlike Socrative, you don't need to redo current quizzes or assignments. The process is very simple. Create an account, generate a code for your class and send it over to students so they can register. iPad using teachers can even assign drawing assignments. Here is their YouTube video demonstrating this great looking tool.
