How I Use It
A third grade class took their iPads on a "Shapes Walk." They worked in pairs to find 10 different shapes in the school. Using Educreations, the students uploaded the images, recorded them selves explaining the name, vertices, sides and approximate dimensions of the shapes. Students would alternate pages in the final product and uploaded it to a student account for assessment purposes and class presentation.
My Take
This is by far the most used app in our school district. It is applicable to every grade level and subject. The app opens with an interactive whiteboard that allows for image upload, colored notations and voice recordings. As you move from one screen to the next, you can pause the recording. When the document is finished, it is saved on the device and uploaded to an online account. The only improvement would be an audio rerecord feature without having to start from the beginning.
