SurveyMonkey

SurveyMonkey enables anyone to create online surveys quickly and easily. Instructors can select from over a dozen types of questions (single choice, multiple choice, rating scales, drop-down menus, and more...).
Instructors have used SurveyMonkey to create tests, quizzes and review questions for students. Students have also used the tool to demonstrate their knowledge as well as use the statistical components of the tool.

SurveyMonkey is a good tool for online learning, as it allows instructors to measure students' progress.
Scanner
(e.g. Canon LiDE 30 One Touch Portable scanners)

Scanner

Scanners are great because they allow you to digitize text that only exists on paper. Once you have an electronic copy of the text, students can manipulate it into a form that appeals most to their particular learning style.
Scanners are useful when a document, or page from a book, only exists in paper form.

Digital text increases the opportunities for students to learn, whether through the use of text-to-speech software or by simply building in scaffolding techniques to take students deeper into the subject/topic.
Crayloa Gel FX Washable Markers

Crayloa Gel FX Washable Markers

Crayola Washable markers clean up completely, easily and fast. They wash off clothes, skin and walls with a swipe of a sponge.
Crayola Washable markers give instructors flexibility in terms of where and what they want to write on. If your giving a hands on demonstration you can draw over the tools, parts or other items that your working with.

These markers are great for group work when the group is brainstorming and can write on the walls.
