A favourite of mine is 'Quickfire' for pupils with 1:1 Chromebooks or iPads.
Teacher opens THIS screen on their Whiteboard
Pupils open THIS screen on their device and JOIN the class
Teacher asks an oral question.
Teacher 'Clicks GO'
Pupils respond with answer, sentence or whatever
Their responses populate on the whiteboard.
Teacher can switch on pupil names if wanted or leave it anonymous
Teacher can choose random student
Teacher can click on an answer and display it large, then either click correct or send back for improvement.
Instant feedback with pupils able to learn from each other's answers.
It stops you making assumptions about what they already know.
Great for building sentences through 'ping pong' answers and feedback.
No login or signing up needed.
If you're using G Suite in school, Google Forms with Chromebooks should be at the top of your list.
Take time to get to know it.
Create a simple forms database with the class and get them to fill it in.
Instant graphs and charts ... and discussion.
Make Thinking Visible
If you have 1:1 Chromebooks, get your pupils on FlipGrid.
You Create a 'GRID' which could be the name of your class.
Then you add 'topics' to the Grid. Each topic is a question for them to respond to.
The pupils open the topic with a link and create a video of themselves responding,
Once uploaded, the other pupils can see each others videos and responses - and reply to them.
It's a mind shift moving from thinking that everything has to be written down.
So engaging and it really makes 'Thinking Visible'

If you haven't tried the Web version of Jamboard yet, give it a go.
Use the sticky notes on a 'whole class collaborative' task.
Excellent for generating class questions.
Create an empty Jamboard file in your Google Drive, then Share the Jamboard as an assignment in Google Classroom - Students Can Edit the File. All pupils can then work on it together.
Big Shout Out for the SeeSaw Learning Journal
Free version does just about everything.
It's just had an overhaul and looks and work great.
Link it to parents if you wish.
The new update 'Draw, Type, Talk' has so much potential.
Need to be 13 plus or you can set up a school account.
Great creative tool.
