Awesome Website - EDUCREATIONS

Have you heard of Educreations? Educreations is an exciting app that transforms your iPad into a recordable whiteboard. It records your voice, handwriting and also allows you to insert pictures to produce your own personal video lessons that you and your students can share online. Your lessons are stored online and can be accessed by students on any computer or iPad. Students can create their own videos to teach peers! It's so great.
