How I Use It
My teachers use it as an interactive whiteboard from anywhere in the room using Airplay. Students use it to create tutorials, share their research findings, demonstrate math problems, and much more. The biggest limitation with this app is the imagination of the user.
My Take
Explain Everything is a powerful presentation creation and screencasting tool. It has a wide range of tools that make it possible for first grade students to create simple narrated slideshows and older students can create sophisticated movies with animations. My only concern with the app s that the increasing functionality may start to come at the expense of its ease of use.
