I looked at this app about a year ago and at the time it didn't look very impressive. It looks now though like they have done considerable work to improve it. GoClass could be a great way to create and deliver your lessons directly from your iPad to your students' iPads or Android tablets (there is an Android version too). Very handy.

How the Power of Interest Drives Learning

How the Power of Interest Drives Learning | Exciting ICT in classrooms | Scoop.it
Research shows that interests powerfully influence our academic and professional choices. When we're interested in a task, we work harder and persist longer, bringing more of our self-regulatory skills into play.
Helene Bearup's insight:

When a students are interested in a topic, unit of work or taks they will be motivated. A "good teacher" can build interest in the most mundane of tasks and students will be happy and motivated. If they are not interested perhaps the content we are delivering is boring or not relevant. This is feedback that should be taken into account rather than blaming the students. Interesting work by interested and stimulating teachers will  interst students and school really can be fun!

Looks like this company has delivered on the great idea of making the creation of apps accessible to all. They have an education focus. I look forward to sitting down and doing some serious testing with this.  Great implications for project based teaching and engagement. In library, learning commons and across campus.

From Nik Peachey's "Commercial Software and Apps for Learning" -- but this one is free for students and teachers.

I'm interested in how many apps there now are to help students program their own content into games. Another step toward gamification. Also, most of these apps are cross-platform, iWorld and Android.

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.
