How I Use It
The iPad 2 had just come out, with a camera and shortly after, this app was created. I thought 'yes! true insight into a student's understanding!' I would say this App is a K-12 App for ANY subject. You can have students annotate and explain their understanding from a reading, a group discussion, photos, mathematical equations, etc. I have seen K's use this app to explain their understanding of bees after viewing a video.
My Take
This App gives teachers the true insight into their students' learning. A teacher can then discuss this with the student, or students could reflect back on a series of 'Explain Everything' examples to self assess their development.
