My all time favorite Edu tool is Office Lens. This very cool free app allows you to take a picture of a chalkboard, computer screen, page, textbook, etc and it will automatically straighten the document, crop and bring this image to OneNote, OneDrive, PowerPoint or convert it to PDF. The tool will recognize text in the image and convert this to editable text. 

So when you decide to convert a paper document to PDF, Office Mix will help you in a glimpse.
