Turn your iPad into your personal interactive whiteboard!
ShowMe allows you to record voice-over whiteboard tutorials and share them online. It’s a radically intuitive app that anyone will find extremely easy to use, regardless of age or background.

RH: This app is fantastic for recording whiteboard tutorials on any subject. I have recorded and placed them on my web page for student review, played them during class, and had a sub play one that I pre-recorded for a review. This app works much like Khan's flipping the classroom model. You can pause the recording and make corrections, erase clutter, or even bring in new images. Of course, you can draw your own.

  2. James was the first to use this app and has had a lot of experience with it. It is a great find especially since it is free. Way to go James! Khan uses an expensive program to produce his Academy tutorials but we can create some great stuff for free.

    1. I have used this app to create videos that allow me to "flip" my classroom. The video can be posted in the PHM blog, which allows for students to access it inside and outside of class. A big plus is then for an absent student. I have made Showme presentations both prior to class, and in one instance in my first period class and then posted the video during passing.
