Explain Everything: an app on the iPad

Some of you may have been considering a way to do some easy recordings that your students can follow from home. Well, Explain Everything might be what you are looking for. Take a look at the tutorial video below. The narrator walks you through the entire process showing you all of the tool options. What is nice about this app is that when you are through with your video, you can export it straight to YouTube and then embed that YouTube video directly into your blog. The kids can do the same with the Google accounts, so that means you can have them teach the concept back to you while recording it on the iPad and showcasing their learning on the eportfolios.

As always, let me know if you have any questions that I can help you with. I’m always happy to come work with you and the students in implementing a tool like this.


Using Categories in Your Blog to Organize TEKS Covered

You add your lesson plans to your blog for parents, students, admins, and everyone else to see. Did you know that you can use those same posts to disaggregate your testing data at any time? It’s pretty simple and will only cost you about 10 minutes of work on the front end to save you hours or days of work on the backend. And you won’t have to redo the front end work until the TEKS change for your course(s).

Take a peek at the video below and shoot me any questions you might have.
