General
How I Use It
1. I create videos using Explain Everything for my students to view. Sometimes I use these videos to flip my lessons and other times I use the videos for reinforcement. 2. I have students show their work by creating their own videos using Explain Everything. I do this to have the students show their thinking, a good way to assess formatively.
My Take
I have tried all (I think) of the screencasting apps, and Explain Everything is the best by far. It has the most tools and the most/best options for saving and sharing the videos created. This app is an app for creating - both by the teacher and/or student.
