D158 Realizes Student Benefits of Using the Explain Everything Application by MorrisCooke
The educational app opens up new learning possibilities for elementary school kids and their teachers.
SAN JOSE, Calif., July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Since the beginning of 2014, the teachers at Leggee, Martin, and Conley Elementary Schools have utilized the Explain Everything app by MorrisCooke. In the course of a few, short months, these teachers have watched their students transform the way they absorb and relay information.
As part of a program for K-5 grades, Explain Everything allows students to interactively devise screencasts on their Android tablets.
“I love the way students can create videos to show how they solved their math problems,” Stacey Johnson, Instructional Technology Specialist at Martin.
The children can demonstrate their understanding of math problems and combine their research into informational videos. By allowing students to record, revise and share their presentations with teachers and classmates, the Explain Everything encourages interaction and engages the students in auditory, oral and visual processes.
Teachers are also able to create lessons on their tablets and students can watch the content as many times as they need to in order to grasp a concept. Explain Everything opens young learners to the possibilities of new media and enhances the subject matter to keep them interested and focused.
“Explain Everything is fantastic because it is easy for the students to use and there are many options for them to express their creativity,” says Robin Yokas, Instructional Technology Specialist.
