I found this resource online. It has some great ideas for integrating technology into the classroom while ensuring that differentiation is maintained. The links are easy to follow. I will certainly be using these in Literacy groups!

What is Kerpoof? The answer to that is not so simple. Kerpoof is all about having fun, discovering things, and being creative. Here are just a few ways that you can use Kerpoof:
Make artwork (even if you aren't good at drawing!)
Make an animated movie (really! it's easy!)
Earn Koins which you can trade for fun things in the Kerpoof Store
Make a printed card, t-shirt, or mug
Tell a story
Make a drawing
Vote on the movies, stories, and drawings that other people have made
There is also an educators page with great ideas for using Kerpoof in the classroom.

This website is an excellent resource for classrooms. The maps can be scribbled on, text can be added, countries can be highlighted and routes can be traced. Scribble maps is a versatile tool that the students should be able to use very easily. Let me know if you give it a go.
