How I Use It
My students used this app recently to work on presentation skills. Because this app is so simple, we were able to quickly create and edit presentations. I noticed early this year that my students needed help with speaking clearly, staying on track, and engaging their audience during presentations, so we used this app to work on those skills. My students were broken into small groups, they chose a topic, and they recorded a presentation. Next, they switched presentations with another group, and those groups provided feedback to one another. Changes were made and more feedback was given. By the end of this project my students were able to give much better presentations. The app really helped this project.
My Take
I've played around with several similar apps to this one, and this app is very limited. However, If all you are needing is a simple whiteboard app, this is a great choice. I find that the simplicity helps some of my students who get distracted by all the bells and whistles of other apps stay focused.
