How I Use It
I used this product for two styles of lessons: a flipped classroom with students watching a teacher led lesson (including days when I was out for a conference with a substitute in the classroom) and with students using a recorded lesson as support for students' homework. I think I will continue to use the app in both ways and any others that will benefit, but I would say the majority will end up being used for flipped classroom with students watching lessons for homework. The major problem, however, is that your students must have access to the internet to watch the video clip and have faith in your students completing the task.
My Take
Attaching Word documents as pictures by taking a screenshot was a bit of an extra step sometimes but worked out well to make sure focus was on specific parts of the document. It is almost impossible smoothly to use without a solid stylus also. Overall, the kids liked it and it gives you multiple ways to sync a presentation with sound, video, pictures, and edit out the mistakes. Try a lesson just for fun (with all that spare time you have) before doing your actual assignment/lesson because the first one will most likely be rough.
