Educreations is a FREE app that turns your iPad into a recordable whiteboard. It allows you to insert images, record your voice and anything you write. As a result, you can produce your own video lessons that you can then share online. Ideal for a flipped classroom approach to setting homework or for providing students with revision materials prior to exams.
Whatever you create is then stored online and can be accessed by students on a computer or iPad both at home and at school. There are also a wide variety of Educreations created by others which you can use as well.
