ShowMe and Explain Everything

___________________________________________________________________________________________________


ShowMe


Use ShowMe as an interactive whiteboard for filming screencasts for student use, parent use, and general instruction.


  • Educreations practically does the same thing.




Explain Everything


Explain Everything is essentially a much more intensive version of ShowMe with many, many more options, tools and ways to export your clip.


  • Is there an app that will allow me to write on/edit what is on the iPad screen (write over top of pp, apps, etc.)?

InfuseLearning and Nearpod

A phenomenal app for teachers and students. This is like Socrative but much more user friendly. This allows instant interaction with all students.





Another app that is similar to InfuseLearning but it incorporates powerpoint type features.
