Explain Everything

Explain Everything is the Swiss Army Knife of iPad apps.  It can be used for just about anything.  As the name suggests, it's a tool for explaining things.  Explain Everything combines the flexibility of an interactive whiteboard with the functionality of screencasting software to create an exceptional product.

Our students use this app for many subjects, but it is especially effective in math. As many classroom teachers know, getting kids to explain their work can be a challenge. With a explain Everything, students have so many more options than just writing an explanation with words. You can import a photo, video, web page, or PDF from the camera roll or a whole host of cloud services. Tools for adding text, drawing, shapes, arrows, laser pointers make customizing a snap and the recording feature works seamlessly to create a video lesson.  Videos can be exported directly to the iPad's camera roll or uploaded to the same selection of cloud services.
