Combining screencasting, desktop control, and an interactive whiteboard in one app, you’ll never have to turn your back to the class or audience again. Create a lesson or presentation, insert images, save and edit your project and record a screencast video you can easily save or share. Doceri does it all!
Control your lesson or presentation live with Airplay or through your Mac or PC. Annotate a Keynote or PowerPoint, or present your original Doceri project. Great for student projects, too.
|Airmore – crossplatform (Android + iOS)
||Airmore – more of a presentation tool
||Doceri – more of a collaborative tool

#appsmashing must be the evolution of the ~ 2010 #mashup
App Smashing is the process of using multiple apps to create projects or complete tasks. App Smashing can provide your students with creative and inspired ways to showcase their learning and allow you to assess their understanding and skills.
6 Amazing App Smash Examples to Inspire Creativity
Why App Smash?
What is an App Smash?
Content created in one app transferred to and enhanced by a second app and sometimes third. Preferably the final product is then published to the web – remember, digital presence is the new résumé (CV).
Reasons to App Smash:
- It demands creative thinking
- It demands more from the technology (value for money)
- It turns the issue of not having a ‘wonder app’ into a positive
- It removes any restrictions to take a topic as far as it can be taken.
- It often results in more engaging learning products
- It’s a fun challenge for ‘digital natives’
Key rules for successful App Smashing:
- Use the Camera Roll as your main conduit between apps
- Leave the app choice to the students
- Have a list of apps capable of smashing content together (See below)

Google Cast for Education Allows Students, Teachers to Share the Projector
By David Nagel
Cast for Education is an app that works on Chrome OS, macOS and Windows. The app is launching in a public beta today and is available as a free download. The difference between Cast and other screen sharing solutions is network-independence.
Google today also launched the full version of its educational virtual reality tool Google Expeditions, along with a new Quiz feature for Google Apps for Education.

Greg Jorgensen emailed us with his new darling:
Explain Everything – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.morriscooke.explaineverything
and raises a very good question:
What do we know and how do we organize our tools and apps for whiteboard screencasting and lecture capture?
Greg’s choice of the day is atop of a list from the Ed Tech/y and Mobile Learning web site:
next on that top-6-list are
Educreations Interactive Whiteboard
Doceri (http://doceri.com/) is a very promissing app, which Bob Lessinger was pushing to be installed on campuos computers (being free), but it is ONLY iPAD-bound (not even iPHone or iTouch)
In addition to Doceri: Stage : Interactive Whiteboard and Document Camera and Splashtop Whiteboard per: 3 Apps to Turn Your iPad into Interactive Whiteboard ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning
Here is a neat table about the compatibility (iOS and Android) for several of these apps:
Here is another good resource from Alaska. The screencasting apps reviewed are the same as above, but other good sources regarding a pedagogy involving the technology.
