Voicethread. Voicethread allows students to post pictures or video clips while commenting and/or annotating on each slide. Some lessons that were used at Eminence Independent Schools (Eminence, KY) include a student-created math project of real world examples of the real number system. His voice was recorded explaining each example. Another math student taught a math lesson to the rest of the class using voicethread. Because he was shy, he didn't have to stand in front of the class.
ST Math. Created by the MIND Research Institute, ST (Spatial-Temporal) Math is game-based instructional software designed to increase math comprehension and proficiency, using language-independent animated representations of mathematical concepts to help students learn.

Activities include practice as well as interactive explorations to allow students a deeper understanding of a topic.
Wikis for Math. Multiple teachers use wikis for students to post work and collaborate. A high school math teacher at Eminence High School (Eminence, KY) had her students use flip video camera to create math lessons for others to view. Sometimes the students created math songs and they were videotaped. On the wiki, the teacher posted a question or reflection for the students to comment on. You can see other sample lessons on her webpage.
