Creating Virtual Whiteboards with Lensoo Create
101 Days of Free Tech for Teachers, Day 58
Lensoo Create is an app that has the ability to turn any tablet into a virtual whiteboard. Virtual whiteboards are great tools for flipped classrooms because they allow teachers to record writings and audio that their students can play back at any given time. Lensoo Create makes it easy to share these virtual whiteboards via email and social media. Teachers can use this tool for homework help, tutoring, engaging in-class presentations, as well as for virtual classrooms. This app is available in the App Store (iOS) and on Google Play.
How We Decide Which Free Tech Tools to Feature Yup, there are thousands of apps, tools, services, websites, and other offerings — many free — designed for teachers and students. So, how do we sort through all of those to feature the ones which are most useful and interesting? Well… we start by sorting through thousands of these things… then we talk to the presenters in the SimpleK12 Teacher Learning Community and watch their videos closely… then we talk to many of the members in the Teacher Learning Community, teachers just like you who are using these apps and tools day in and day out. We’ve been doing this for over 30 years and have, in that time, developed a sense for what’s good and bad. Have we missed something that we should feature here? Most certainly. So, let us know in the Comments section what we should take a look at and we’ll throw ’em into the hopper.
