The ipads are definitely great at accessing students ability to demonstrate their understanding in a variety of ways. One app that I like is "explain everything". Here is one video below:

Google drawings are a great tool for group or cooperative presentations. Students can import a coordinate grid and work on it together. I think the bonus of digital media is that it ends up being a resource for other students after it has been assessed.

Thanks for the post! You're listed several resources that I haven't heard before.

In response to your question about integrating Common Core into classrooms, I have another resource to propose: mathbreakers. It's a 3D math adventure game where students can play pre-build levels and apply specific math concepts learned in the classroom - or - work individually or in a group to build their own levels. We're close to our release, our trailer can be found at mathbreakers.com - I'd love to hear your feedback!
