How I Use It
When I found out I had strep/walking pneumonia and I would be out for several days, I freaked out. We all know that teachers don't have time to be sick--every second matters. I remembered I had heard about educreations, so I decided to check it out. I recorded videos of my math and reading lessons for the next several days, uploaded them to Edmodo, and left plans with the sub for them to check out the videos. I lost my voice by the end of the videos, but my kids didn't lose instruction time! I also used this to record small group lessons, and for center activities.
My Take
I created a "game-based" classroom last year, and this app was perfect. It enabled the students to work at their own pace, and to review key concepts.
