    What are some resources you wish existed on the web (apps, websites) that would make your life easier?

    I think one thing technology should be able to address is the turnaround time and data from standardized tests. The results from these tests should be available very quickly since most are administered and graded by computer.

    I like classdojo.com for behavior management and parent communication, but I'd like more similar options in that area. I think there is a lot you could do with it - make it a game, let kids earn points to do something fun, etc.

    As an ELA teacher, I'm facing with cheating, plagiarism and lack of attention of my students. My students are high-schoolers, so they're easily distracted.

    Despite that fact I'm already using a powerful plagiarism checker Unplag in my classroom, there are some additional features I would like to be implemented. I would like to have:
    - synonym & sentence structure checking option - to detect possible rough paraphrase (I haven't heard about this feature in many plagiarism detection tools)
    - instant grader

    And speaking of distraction, sometimes my students are distracted when they are using educational apps. So for this reason I'm a little bit confused. We blocked main distraction websites, but is this the way out?
