We all like to leave presentations/conferences with practical tools that we can put straight to use in the classroom. Almost every teacher has a selection of bookmarks or apps they come back to time and time again. The most popular of these apps and sites are well-known, but some little gems can take a long time to spread via word-of-mouth.
