Assessment-Students can show what they have learned using voice recording and labeling to demonstrate a concept. The teacher can view the videos and determine if a concept has been mastered.
Peer Mentoring- Students can create videos to share with their peers.
Teaching-Teachers can record instructions and students can watch the video to learn a new concept or to receive additional instruction and practice with a concept. I think this would be a great way to explain a homework assignment or project so students and parents can watch the video together at home.
Something Special- Even though Educreations are created on the ipad they can be viewed on any device. So, your students are not tied to an ipad in order to view the lessons.
Check out some of the creations on the Educreations website... http://www.educreations.com/
Book Creator is a simple way to create and share books on the ipad. You create your own books using original art or photos and you can add music, narration and video to make your book more special. The app gives you the first book for free. But, for $4.99 you have unlimited access to Book Creator.
Applications: Students can create and publish books to build creativity and celebrate their imagination. Students can write non fiction books and publish to show what they have learned about a topic.
Something Special- Books can be shared with family, friends, classmates and colleagues without printing them. They are perfect for reading electronically. Books can be interactive. And, books can be submitted to the ibook store for publication.
