My favorite is called Pear Deck. Think about when you present something to students... new content. You want visuals. You want engaging content. You want participation. What if I told you that you could do all of those things in one?
Here's how it works:

Since I needed to review for a social studies test today. I spent yesterday trying out Pear Deck with my classroom while reviewing with my students.
Now, since they were on iPads, I couldn't take pictures without their faces in them. But I wanted to show you 2 of the views that you can see:
This shows you the presentation view (the desk top) and the teacher view (my laptop). On the students' view, they are able to answer questions, text answers, or draw/circle to show answers. The presentation mode shows the question, engaging images/videos, or results from answers. On my teacher view, I get a dashboard to see who has answered, what the students are doing in real time, and can quickly assess learning.
Engaging. Easy to create. Educational to the extreme. Amazing!
