30 Hands is an easy app that allows students to create presentations. Students insert pictures and record their voice. You can also annotate over pictures, which is great if you need to add text or highlight something in the image. Presentations can be exported to the camera roll and put in Dropbox so everyone can enjoy them. If you want to give it a try, just let me know. Even our youngest learners will be able to use this app!
Pixie is a program that we have had for a while, but it is one of my favorites. Integration is a cinch because the possibilities are endless. Students can draw, record, and use stickers to create just about anything they want. There are stickers for creating electrical circuits. They have templates that we can adjust and use how we want. Patterns, famous Americans, grid coordinates, trading cards...amazing student-created work! This program makes it easy to create class projects, too. I would love to show it to your class!
