How I Use It
My students used this app to review or reteach a topic about which they learned earlier in the semester. Using the pointer to specify part of an image they were discussing, underlining words for emphasis, and filling in graphic organizers were their favorite tools. Many felt awkward about recording and hearing their own voices (middle school - go figure).
My Take
I plan on having students use this app to design their cultural heritage presentation this year instead of using Powerpoint and Prezi. It helps presentations come to life and makes the design process more fun for the students. The sequential slide feature seems to be easier for students to operate than the continuous feed in the ShowMe app.
