There are quite a few apps around offering to act as mini-whiteboards/PowerPoint substitutes/presentational devices. For quick one-offs I like educreations for its simplicity, but for something a little more sophisticated which leaves you with various options of format for saving (and leaving you in ‘ownership’ of your products) ‘Explain Everything‘ seems to be a particularly good option.
As ever, I tried to overcomplicate things at first by trying to create something Pixar would produce, but then calmed down a bit. The usual functions you would expect: line drawing, typing, shapes, insert images, simple animation etc are there, along with voice recording. (My only dislike is being unable to disconnect the mic which seems to be leaving some clicks and buzzes on the sound track, but perhaps I’ll find a work round in due course).
Export is available in a variety of formats, and I look forward to use it as we try a little tentative ‘flipping’ of the classroom and for students to present their findings.
