How I Use It
This app is great because it is so versatile. As a teacher, I like to use this app as a SmartBoard replacement. I love that it has most of the frequently used features of a SmartBoard, and it allows me to be mobile, rather than tied to the front of the room. You do have to have a way to project your iPad (like an Apple TV or Refelctor App). I also like to use this as a student app. It is a great way for students to record themselves completing a task and breaking down their thought process.
My Take
I have tried a lot of white boarding apps, but I always come back to Explain Everything. It has such a robust tool bar, so many options for sharing your final product, and is so user friendly that it outshines the competition. Cost is minimal, and in a lot of ways I think it is a great replacement or substitute for student PowerPoint use. Presentations become more media rich and interactive than a PowerPoint!
