Yesterday at Geek Day Brent Hirata presented NearPod, a free classroom presentation tool which can engage students in a synchronous slideshow with extra pizazz! Presentation events are accessible on a web browser on their computer or via a free app on an iPad.  Format is a bit challenging on the small mobile phone screen, but possible. 

You create a presentation, including text slides, images and videos, then send the event code to learners. For a $10/month you can add audio narrations to your slides or allow them to go out to the web from within the presentation, such as to watch a YouTube video.  Size limit is 20 MB or 50 MB for combined presentations for the free account.
