1. Google Translate

2. Google Cardboard

3. Just A Line

4.1. JigSpace provides augmented reality animations, from car engines to the solar systems, right in front of your eyes including captions and explanations to help your understanding. All you need is an iOS device.

4.1.1. Students can use JigSpace to get more of a "hands on" learning experience. This app would work best with science. If students were learning about the digestive system then they could use JigSaw on their classmates as a model to where and what each organ does.

5. Expeditions

There are currently 900 tours available. Users are able to share their screen with others, so it is perfect for small group. Google Cardboard or Daydream headsets are required for use.
