Great Little App That Packs A Big Punch

Explain Everything is an incredibly versatile app that can be used in all curriculum areas.

iPad Apps to Support Universal Design for Learning

Explain Everything and Consolidation

Explain Everything's ability to snap a picture and annotate directly on the image are features that can transform the consolidation portion of your 3 part math lesson. Students no longer need to struggle to see what their peers are sharing (e.g. on the charts/posters, manipulatives etc).

Explain Everything & Assessment

The Explain Everything app gives teachers the opportunity to truly know what their students understand. When used during assessment, students may choose to use the record feature of the app. Students are given the opportunity to speak freely, no longer being concerned with spelling and punctuation errors. Students are able to review their responses as often as necessary until they are happy with the quality of their response. When they are satisfied with their response, they submit it to the teacher (export to camera role then AirDrop).

Explain Everything & Balanced Literacy

Capturing a student reading a text aloud is a very powerful tool! Not only is the recording powerful for the student involved but it is also a valuable product that can be included in a student's digital portfolio and shared with parents. The Explain Everything app makes this process seamless and can be completed by even our youngest students.
