Pixel Press Floors is changing the way we experience mobile games by letting anyone be the creator, publisher and player of their own video game. With our creator platform, you can literally draw your own video game - no coding required.


Imagine playing games from around the world that all began from just an idea on paper! 

By recognizing the shapes (“glyphs”) you draw on paper or in the app using our “Draw-in-App” tools, we instantly turn your level blueprint into a game that can be tested, designed, played - and most importantly, published to the “Arcade” where others can enjoy your level and you can track how many times it’s played.

The most popular activities are Spelling TestMe, HangMouse, and our vocabulary games, available to Premium Members.

Mystery Math Museum

If you like Mystery Math Town, you’re really going to like the sequel.
Featuring a brand new town with 8 themed museums and an entirely new cast of quirky characters (along with some old friends) to add to your gallery. And...we’ve added division to the math practice options.
Your mission: Help a friendly and curious little ghost rescue the dragonflies that are hidden in Mystery Math Museum. Players use math skills to unlock rooms and passages on their epic journey. Along the way, you can also earn talking portraits for your Gallery. Every picture has a story to tell and the colorful cast of characters in the museums have plenty to say.

Remind

Remind is a safe, fast, and easy way from teachers to communicate with students and parents. Teachers never see students' phone numbers and students' never see theirs. Remind 101 allows you to send a text or email to every student and parent in your classes. It also allows you to schedule messages ahead of time and view the history or messages sent! We were lucky to meet Brett Kopf and his team at ISTE. 
They were great people who are helping change the way teachers communicate with students and parents. They are continuously working to improve Remind and enjoy hearing feedback from teachers. Check out the short introduction video below and don't wait to sign up for your FREE account HERE!






Explain Everything




Explain Everything is an easy-to-use design, screencasting, and interactive whiteboard tool that lets you annotate, animate, narrate, import, and export almost anything to and from almost anywhere.
Create slides, draw in any color, add shapes, add text, and use a laser pointer. Rotate, move, scale, copy, paste, clone, and lock any object added to the stage.
Add new or existing photos and videos. Import PDF, PPT, DOC, XLS, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and RTF files from Evernote, Dropbox, Box, GDrive, WebDAV, Email, iTunes, and any app that allows you to open these files types using "Open In…". Export MP4 movies, PDF documents, PNG images, or XPL project files directly from your iPad.

  10. Disney Infinity was one of the most popular booths at this year's E3. It could be that they were giving away T-shirts or the action figures you could use when the game launches but I have a hunch that people were also just curious to play it. Basically, Disney wants a piece of Activision's

  12. Backgammon looks hard doesn't it? It really is not as difficult as it looks to pick up the basics. Roll dice, move your pieces (checkers) around the board. The challenge comes to improve the strategic and tactical side of the game which can be very subtle. Play and you will learn.

Created by Tony Vincent, it has become our most popular in our iPad academy. It is applicable to pre-k through college level students and once the puzzles are made by the teacher, they can be shared to a wikispace. It is revolutionary! Then have the Students make puzzles to share with others too! EE app can be pulled into it too! Hands down the best new app on the market! Check it out
