Educreations--An App with Many Possibilities

Educreations is a FREE iPad app that allows both students and teachers to be creative! I introduced this app recently to a Kindergarten student who was using it independently in minutes to draw pictures, write and type words, and record her voice. Teachers can use Educreations to create video tutorials to post online.

Features of the Educreations app:
  • Write or draw free hand with a choice of 10 colors.
  • Type text with the iPad keyboard, resize it, and move it around on the screen.
  • Import pictures from the camera roll or Dropbox, or take pictures with the iPad and insert them directly onto the screen.
  • Record your screen movements and/or your voice.
  • Add as many pages as you like.

Teachers can create an account at educreations.com to post their videos either privately or publicly. They can then share the videos via Facebook, Twitter, email, or a link.

Visit the educreations web site to see tutorials created by other teachers.
