I’ve just come across PingPong, a great little free app which looks like it has lots of potential! I haven’t had chance to try this yet but I think with the revision season to begin in full flow on our return to school this could be really useful. Questions can be created on the spot and students access the ‘ROOM’ through use of a simple room code. Questions are set and realtime responses given. Questions can be multiple choice, true or false or up to 40 character responses or annotated diagrams can be sent by students. The app can be linked to Evernote to export responses. It has a very simple interface and seems to do ‘as it says on the tin’ rather than having lots of extras but the beauty of the app is likely to be the simplicity of use. For schools with 1:1 ipads or where all students have access to some form of electronic device this looks like it could be a useful additional app for the response system toolkit!
There is quick introduction video which gives an overview here:

PDF to Word is a neat little free app for Cometdocs for converting PDF documents to word. Great for use with iphones and iPads for converting PDF documents on the go.
Some of the free features of the app:
- The app is free and has no limits on file size or number of requests
- Conversion is simple, accurate and precise. The end result of the conversion is ready to use in MS Word or Google Docs.
- All PDFs are supported (even scanned ones)
- The in-app purchase is valid for a lifetime and it enables users to skip the possible conversion queue (it happens when there are too many requests although never a long one).

You may have noticed that at the moment this has become a fortnightly bulletin rather than weekly – mainly due to time pressures! Hopefully it will give people more time to digest and try things out! Click here to download this week’s bulletin.
