How I Use It
In math, Educreations is a perfect tool for students to "show their work." As they work a problem, they describe/record their explanation of how they arrived at their answer. As an assessment tool, Educreations lets me see exactly where a student is having problems.
My Take
Students are really engaged when they are creating their own videos using Educreations. Because students can narrate while they write or draw, this app provides a great way for teachers to assess what their students know. This free app also allows the teacher to record a lesson that can be used for "homework" when flipping a lesson or for helping a student who is absent get caught up.
