Using Explain Everything (explaineverything.com) to create non linear time-lines has been a real eye opener for me. We had training three days ago and I can’t set it down. I’ve created one for our history topic of the Vikings. It is incredibly easy to use and having the ability to drop YouTube and other clips in makes it an absolute winner with children. So many apps and pieces of technology claim to be game changers, but after just three days use in class I have to conclude, this could be the real thing. The children can watch again and again procedures to improve their skills and understanding, share with the friends, peer review and present. My wife, who teaches at a secondary school, and is a self confessed technophobe, can also see the applications in her classroom. Used in conjunction with a few other apps, my classroom may well just have flipped!
