MorrisCooke and renowned researcher, educator, and TEDx speaker, Dr. Reshan Richards, developed Explain Everything to work in a classroom setting and to empower students to learn in creative new ways. With Explain Everything, students are empowered to share what they know in real-time. The app supports multiple types of content including PDFs, shapes, video, and drawing in addition to allowing users to interact with their project through touch-screen technology.
As an advocate for education, creativity in the learning process, and formative assessment, Richards worked with MorrisCooke to develop an app that would give students a fun, interactive, and sophisticated learning experience. Together, they aimed to offer teachers, students, and parents a look into the learning process through timeline technology that would allow the app to show workflow.
“Assessment should be a learning process for both teacher and student. It should be a chance to evaluate what is working and what is not. We designed Explain Everything in a way that allows a more in-depth look at the learning process in order to foster formative assessment,” stated Richards. “Watching children explore the app and use features in new and innovative ways is so rewarding. With the right tools, children excel and the learning process becomes engaging, rewarding, and fun.”
Explain Everything has also worked in collaboration with Intel to optimize the app for Android devices. “It is our philosophy that all students and teachers should have access to the best technology available and we are committed to providing resources and support to innovative developers who share this vision,” says Lakshmi Talluru, director of the Intel Software Partners and Emerging Markets Software and Services Group. “Intel is proud to support developers in bringing interesting, useful and meaningful Android apps to consumers.”
Explain Everything is now available for all Android tablets through the Google Play store. Over one million teachers already use the app on iOS. The app has a one-time cost of $2.99 and complies with the Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), meaning that no user credentials are required, no personal information is collected, and all content created with the app is owned by the user.
“We have been fortunate to work with incredible partners throughout the development and launch of Explain Everything for Android,” stated Richards. “As a teacher and educator, I am confident that this is a product that can redefine the classroom experience in a positive way for both students and teachers.”
