Show Me App
The other day I had a handful of students in my class who finished an activity in record time, so I gave them a few iPads and asked them to look for apps they thought were educationally sound and then present them to the class (basically so I could buy myself some time to work with some of the other students that needed more time). Anyway, what started as a way to keep some kids busy turned into an incredible experience! I loved how my students shared their rationales for the apps they chose. I am going to blog about them over the next few weeks...starting with SHOW ME.
This is what the two girls wrote on the board and they are so right! Show me is a great way for students to teach each other (and show you, the teacher, what they know). Click below to see the show me they made! Makes for a great activity and/or assessment!

Love educreations & showme! They are similar and both engage students in synthesizing what they've learned and communicating it orally & visually with others. Love the post!

Thanks for your comments, looks like I have to check out educreations too! Sounds like a great project for my students. They can evaluate them both and present their findings :)
