We have just started using a teleprompter app for our morning announcements.  It seems to get going pretty well - just a few more kinks to work out!  While we don't use this particular app, it looks to have the same options and is a free app for use in a classroom.

Is Technical Writing For You | Business Communications

Is Technical Writing For You | Business Communications | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
