How I Use It
I have used Educreations in many content areas. In reading I had students create a retell where they had to make slides for the beginning, middle, and end of the stories. In Social Studies we did the Jigsaw strategy, and each person took one of the sections to teach their team about the next day. One thing I did not like about the app and hope it will change someday is the fact you can't edit it once you record. The students can edit anything on their slides, but once they record there is no way to go back and re-record.
My Take
I did like Educreations overall, and would recommend it. I love that it is free and can be used in so many different content ares. The only downfall I have really found so far is the fact you cannot edit it once you record. Students were able to figure out the app quickly so we could focus on the project instead of how to use it.
