TechSmith has released a free iPad appcalled ScreenChomp that lets you create screencasts with audio narration on the go. You draw freehand on the iPad’s touch screen—the app offers 12 colored pens to choose from—and as you doodle, your voice gets recorded in sync with the drawing. The recorded video can be downloaded as an MPEG-4 file from the screencast.com Web site, which you can then upload to YouTube or any other video sharing Web site.

See how Matt Lindsay at Countryside is using this to share video lessons with students and parents.
Did you know? You can take a screen capture with your iDevice by holding the power button and the home button at the same time.
Lesson Idea: Have students take screen shots of different locations using Google Earth and then POW Strip Design to add text about that specific location.
Think about reading: Students could look at locations in different books you are reading, visit them using Google Earth on your iDevice and write about setting in the novel!
POW Strip Designer allows you to create your own Comic Strip Design using photos from your photo library.
Lesson Ideas: Have students use the white board app to draw numbers, take a screen shot (by pushing the home button and the power button simultaneously) and have the kids create math problems or multi digit numbers using the Strip Designer.
My new idea! Use Google Earth to study a state or regions or locations from a book they are reading to take screen captures of different locations and share learning about that specific location.
Cost is $2.99 and totally worth it!
