Many schools don’t have sets of ipads for various reasons…maybe financial or through informed choice. I have my own ipad and have used it in various ways in the classroom, but this app allows collaboration within the classroom on just a single device. The app allows either the teacher or the students to create a podcast which includes, of course audio, but also the opportunity to draw as you speak to enhance explanations. There are many ‘Showme’ podcasts online that can also be accessed. They could also be made available for students to access at home. What a creative and motivating way to present homework! See the link in the blogroll to access a post from Edutopia where a more detailed explanation is available.
