While my husband was watching football on a Saturday afternoon (ugh), I decided to play around with this new app I found. It’s not free ($4.99), but it’s crazy cool. Corkulous is a great app for allowing students to explain Math, Science, or any other concepts they are learning in the classroom. It allows you to upload images, create post-it notes to explain information and works great with other apps such as Doodle Buddy if you want to add personal drawings. Here is an example I used to explain the water cycle:
The app also allows you to create a template as well as beginning a new project from scratch. I uploaded some images in dropbox that I knew I wanted to include in this explanation. When I finished my corkboard, I saved the image in My Photos on the iPad. Then I opened Doodle Buddy, inserted my corkboard, and drew the arrows to represent the order of each process. The last step was to save the image again and email it to myself. It sounds tricky at first, but once you (and your kids) get the hang of it, the sky is the limit!
