ScreenChomp VS. Explain Everything


I have loved using ScreenChomp to record, to sketch, and to share "how to" videos to help students understand math concepts using my iPad on my Apple TV or Smart Board. Students have also loved making their own ScreenChomp videos which has made my iPad an excellent assessment tool.
While searching for ways to upload our recent Go Math Screenchomp videos to You Tube, 
I ran across the app called : Explain Everything!
It has more bells & whistles and it even
allows me to automatically upload videos to either You Tube, Dropbox, Twitter or our Team Newell Blog right from my iPad. No extra steps! It is worth $2.99! 
Screenchomp does allow you to share videos, but Explain Everything does it right from your iPad quickly with no extra steps. 
Here is a quick video that I made to reteach how to find the sum of a near double problem using the doubles. 

Students will be making videos to post on our Go Math Journey Website. Check back soon! Pin It


  1. Thank you! I really need to give this a try. I've never thought about assessing students like that before, but I think it is a great idea! I appreciate all of your advice. It really is helping to push me to try more technology in my classroom.

  2. I use Explain Everything with my students. The kids create videos explaining math topics to other kids. I tried to use Screen Chomp, but it will not allow me to save one student's work so that they will come back and edit it. With 3 iPads to share amongst 15 students, the ability to save and come back to it is a must!
