How I Use It
I think this app is a great way for students to share their learning through pictures, text, and narration. It appeals to a variety of learning styles. Some students might got frustrated when they messed up their recording and couldn't erase to start over. I wish there was a way that they could erase the recording on each page if they wanted to start again. The next time I use this app with students, they will have a rubric to score their own presentation. This will help them know exactly what should be included before they begin and hopefully motivate them to want to do better.
The 5th grade students that I worked with used Educreations to make science presentations on vertebrates and invertebrates. They took pictures with the iPads as well as searched for pictures on the internet to use as examples. Students learned quickly how to add text and use the tools. They recorded their narration of text and saved their work for their teacher and classmates to view at a later time.
