ScreenChomp is a great way have your students use the iPad to analyze and annotate over pictures or use it as a whiteboard. You can record the work done within the app and have it save automatically to the internet. Check it out!
Text Version of Instructions
Tap the ScreenChomp app icon.
Using the drawing tools begin to utilize the board as you would a whiteboard or Interwrite pad (there are no wireless solutions yet, so you’ll need a VGA cord connected to the iPad dongle to project onto a screen or board).
To change colors of the markers, tap and hold down any marker and you’ll get a choice of 12 colors to choose from.
To erase the while screen tap and hold the wipe cloth icon.
To erase just a section of the screen, tap the black eraser to erase only what you touch (the eraser will turn white, and back to black when you select a different tool).
If you would like to add a photo to the background to lecture off of, tap the far left icon for your camera roll (there is not a “Camera” feature, so you’ll need to save an image online to your roll or already have taken your picture, otherwise you’ll have to switch out of the app take the picture and come back to it).
If you would like to record your screen, tap the red “rec” button at the bottom right of the screen. It will count down 3, 2, 1 and begin recording. The app will utilize your microphone and record your voice as well. When you are done, tap the “stop” button. This will take you to another screen where you will preview your video. If you do not like it, tap and hold the trashcan to rerecord your presentation. When you are satisfied with your video, tap the “screenchomp.com” button at the bottom right (next to the Facebook button). Once you tap this, your video will be uploading to the ScreenChomp server and be available for you as soon as it’s processed. To find out when it’s done, tap the three cards at the top left of the main white screen. You’ll be able to see all of your videos that you’ve uploaded so far.
