How I Use It
Explain everything allowed me to create presentations to share with my students that were effective in conveying information needed for classroom discussion. Students then have the ability to view these presentations from anywhere when they are exported and uploaded online to video sharing sites (Vimeo, YouTube, etc.). I loved how easy it was to pick up the iPad with Explain Everything installed and get started. If you have used a virtual whiteboard or whiteboard software on you computer, this is just as easy!
My Take
Students are able to see a presentation in real time when using Explain Everything in the classroom in combination with an Apple TV or other device to allow the screen of the iPad to be mirrored. Explain Everything's ability to export in various formats also allows for presentations to easily be uploaded to various sites for viewing by students when away from the classroom. This makes flipping your classroom so much easier! For schools looking for a virtual whiteboard solution without huge funds, this app is fantastic and the investment is much lower than a virtual whiteboard system. The cost being only $2.99 currently in the app store, and less if purchased in a Volume Purchasing Program, makes it very affordable for any teacher to use with their iPad.
