ENTRY #5 – Educreations
Educreations is our fifth entry in DEN March Madness. DEN STAR Mary Ann Jezierski nominated this popular iPad app. Educreations is a recordable interactive whiteboard that captures your voice and handwriting to produce amazing video lessons that you can share online. Students and colleagues can replay your lessons in any web browser, or from within our app on their iPads. Users can import images into Educreations, making it a great tool to use with content from Discovery Education. In fact, Mary Ann’s students students often embed Discovery Education content into their Educreations. For example, her students just completed a project on the Bill of Rights and used Discovery Education to expand upon each amendment.
