SeesawSeesaw is a digital portfolio site which is used by an large number of schools for sharing class and student work.
"Seesaw empowers students to independently document what they are learning at school.
Students can “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. You can also import directly from most popular apps."

I've pointed this out before but it just keeps getting better! Who needs to travel?(!)
"Google Art Project is an online platform through which the public can access high-resolution images of artworks housed in the initiative’s partner museums.

"What is e-ako maths?
- e-ako maths is a resource created to support students' development of a sound knowledge and understanding of important maths ideas.
- e-ako maths is designed to complement and support a classroom teaching programme and is not intended to be a stand alone tool for teaching these important concepts. The supporting resources linked below will help integrate e-ako maths into your class programme. Click to read about ways that the student e-ako can be used, both by students and as professional learning and development for teachers.
- Each student will have their own account so that they can explore the material at their own pace. Each account needs to have a unique username, but the accounts can share an email address so you could use a class email address if you wish.
- e-ako maths provides pathways of interactive learning modules (e-ako) for students to work through. Students can choose from the available e-ako, with assessment e-ako restricting access to more difficult material.
- Each e-ako contains both teaching screens and interactive elements for students to complete. These interactive elements include matching tasks, multiple choice questions, and short answer questions."
