How I Use It
Educreations is a fairly simple whiteboard and presentation app that can be used many different ways. I've used it to record presentations or flipped lessons for students. I've also used it in real time while mirroring my iPad to the front of the room. I have used it for student presentations as well. The app is pretty straightforward, offers quick annotation of pictures, and records audio. I wish the sharing and saving system were a little better. Also, once you finish a recording, there is no going back to make changes.
My Take
Educreations is so simple that it is accessible to teachers and even young students. It works for all students, because it gives students a way to make their thinking visible using pictures, words, annotations, and voice. This app is really a must have for the classroom. I love to use it in math to see if students are able to solve a problem with explanation. It is much easier to see any misconceptions through an Educreations presentation than with a paper and pencil assessment.
