ScreenChomp - iPad Only, Free

Reviewer Comments
ScreenChomp is an easy to use interactive whiteboard app that allows you to send lessons or explanations to your students or reinforce a concept for a student who may be struggling.
The app comes with a whiteboard of a variety of colored markers and highlighters for you to demonstrate your lesson or concept. In addition you can narrate what you are doing and voila you have created your own content and/or lesson.
In the classroom you can use ScreenChomp to explain how to make something or have students create mini lessons to share with each other. It can be an interactive tool for the class to see how you may do a math problem or draw a picture of a table setting for a home and careers class. The opportunities are endless and extremely powerful for communicating to anyone who needs differentiated instruction.
Here is an example of using ScreenChomp We are just showing how to draw some balls using colors and different circles and narrating as we go along.
It is also a great way to share with parents what you are doing so they can be a part of the lesson and help children practice learning concepts at home. Repetition is key, especially for students with special needs, as they may need many more opportunities to practice and repeat to internalize a concept. Our students like having the extra help at home especially when there homework involves using ScreenChomp.
