COD - 10/29/2012 ScreenChomp [iPad Whiteboard]

A special series of posts this week will feature four iPad apps that can help you use your iPad effectively with an interactive whiteboard. Today's featured app is ScreenChomp

ScreenChomp for iPad is a simple doodling board with markers and one-click sharing tools to create a sharable, replayable video that helps you illustrate concepts and procedures with more clarity. Students can view the videos on their individual devices or they can be effectively presented on an interactive whiteboard.

ScreenChomp lets you capture your touch interactions and audio instructions on a plain background, or an image from your iPad's camera roll, from Dropbox, or take a picture. You can sketch out your ideas and talk the viewer through the “how” and “why”, then share your video to and get a simple web link you can paste anywhere. 


It's easy for both teachers and students to create bite-sized, targeted lessons that can be shared online, again and again. Students can use ScreenChomp to help each other with homework and collaborate on projects. Teachers can present information and skills to kids who are away from school, or record a few tips to send home with them. If you are using the "flipped classroom" model, ScreenChomp can be a very handy tool.

ScreenChomp was created by some innovative teachers with learning and idea-sharing in mind. The app is free and there’s no need to create or manage an account, just post and share. Requires iOS 4.2 or later.
