Educreations Interactive Whiteboard
The go-to app for simple screencasting
Publisher: Educreations, Inc

Why we love this app

Educreations gets the balance between simple to use and full featured absolutely spot on. It functions as a recordable whiteboard whereby you can create a video that records anything you do on the screen with an accompanying narrative.

What it teaches and how it works

Use the app to demonstrate learning. Children can explain how to do something using images and drawings to illustrate their story. You can import pictures or draw a background while recording or before you record. It's up to you. The developers have kept this app simple to use by including only four tools: drawing, text, photos, and erase. This makes it suitable for anyone of any age group to use to create a simple screencast. Educreations requires you to create an account to save your work.

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

Although the app is simple, it has unlimited scope for use. Your kids will love showing you what they learned, and enjoy being able to review it over and over.
