Favorite Apps: Educreations

Ms. Knaus and her fourth-grade class have been using Educreations to create brief multimedia presentations that will teach first-grade students about goods and services. ¬†It’s a very simple app that has lots of possibilities, and students found it very intuitive to use.

Why we like it:

– voice-recording screencasting function makes it easy to explain a process while showing with visuals

– inserting visuals from photoroll, camera, or the web is smooth and easy

Рlimited number of  options makes it uncomplicated for young learners

– it’s free!

Downsides:

– can’t export to any kind of media file; can only store and watch them on Educreations web server

– need a login to be able to save and access presentations

– if you make a mistake recording, can’t go back without starting over
