Create short recorded animations for teacher use or student use!
These apps are an obvious solution for the old problem students have when they start to "tune out" the teacher's voice, but they can also be used to be sure each group gets the same message, or that your students hear exactly what you want them to on a day you are absent!
My favorite way to use apps like these, though, is to get the students to make what is usually an "every day" task (read-alouds, flash cards, fact statements, defining words, etc.) into an engaging and shareable project! Quick and easy! It also makes large compilations of small "chunks" of facts much more palatable. These apps work on Ipads and Iphones, and most Ipods!
