Today I was the only person who showed up the the Doceo Center & Distance Extended Education workshop in the college of education at UI which was disappointing.  This one-on-one session on teaching with smartphones did give me a lot of ideas that might save me some time organizing data I collect from and for classes. Cassidy Hall and Carie Saunders went through several apps that might be useful to other teachers and I am including the links here with brief notes from the workshop.

Google Forms is their favorite because of the amount of options, available templates and ease of use with your personal Google drive.

CamScanner is a practical free app for students to download on their phones to submit assignments rather than taking pictures of documents.  This digital document tool allows you to add to dcouments as well as change formats.

DocHub allows you to add custom signatures to documents, take incomplete forms and sign them, etc.

Kahoot! is a great tool for live, in-class quizzes, games, activities and so forth.  This tool creates a PIN number for each quiz or survey and students can then access it at KahootIt to join in.

PollEverywhere allows you to text in answers.
