My students have just finished a project using the app on the iPad called ShowMe. They have created their own account, then they recorded their lessons and embedded their videos on their Google Sites so I could grade their projects.
This app enables them to record their voices and also everything that they write on the whiteboard space. On the rubric I have created, I stated that my 8th grade students would have to teach question words (palabras interrogativas) such as cuál, cuándo, dónde, etc to younger students. They really liked this project and put a lot of thought into it. I am very pleased with the results.
Here are some examples of their final project: Proyecto ShowMe: Palabras Interrogativas (scroll down to the end of the page to watch the videos)
