April Blog: Involving Parents in Virtual School Learning

Involving Parents in Virtual School Learning

This month's blog is Involving Parents in Virtual School Learning.

Virtual learning is a necessity now. And this situation is likely to continue for at least the foreseeable future as the world grapples to combat and contain the Covid-19 pandemic.

With the pandemic barely showing any signs of abating schools are increasingly turning towards virtual learning systems. They're well aware that students can't afford to miss an entire academic year

Furthermore, virtual learning is also important for schools to prevent their campuses from becoming areas for the Covid-19 contagion.

In these situations, it's important for schools to encourage and involve parents in virtual learning too.

App of the Month

Every month we are going to feature a different, and hopefully FREE, iPad/iPod/iPhone/Android educational application. Visit our ever-changing app page.

The App of the Month for April is Explain Everything Whiteboard by Explain Everything sp. z o.o. ( iOS and Android ).


Winner of the App Store Best of 2020: Leading the Classroom.

Teach, present, sketchnote, record videos, and work together, all in the Explain Everything Whiteboard.

Compared to other tools, Explain Everything is the Swiss army knife of the whiteboarding apps. Due to its unique versatility, new possibilities to express knowledge are opened up, breaking down the boundaries of time and distance, allowing you to sketch, talk and share across a new landscape, digitally reimagining how you explain anything.

Make the process of creating quality explainer videos a breeze. Share your whiteboard presentation either on site or at a distance. Open up an infinite digital space to visually brainstorm complex ideas and share invaluable feedback.

  • Bring in media directly from iCloud, GDrive, Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, or Evernote as well as export back to them.

  • Capture your interactions and voice to create just-in-time video messages and stories.

  • Whiteboard together in real time with voice chat on any device, anywhere. Invite guests with a link or project CODE to join you. Record everything and share later as a video.

  • Turn your infinite canvas into a mixed-media playground of videos, images, documents, and sketches 
that captivate, engage, and i nspire others.

  • Share your projects as images, PDFs, MP4s or editable Explain projects. Share as a web video link so others can stream your Explainer videos.

  • Centrally manage your group or institution’s access to the whiteboard and its functionality with ease and comfort.

––– Present, teach, and inspire –––

Lead your audience with a flexible interactive tool. Add documents, images, video, audio, sketches, and more to engage all styles of learning. Organize your materials on an infinite canvas and never run out of space.

––– Record and share whiteboard videos –––

Record animations, annotations, and voice, and make edits using the timeline. Explain Everything’s infinite canvas and recording tools make creating explainer videos a breeze.

––– Meet and collaborate –––

Meet, work, record, and share your videos all in a single app. Invite anyone to your Explain Everything Whiteboard and collaborate in real-time on our infinite canvas with voice-chat. Record the whole thing or pick out the good bits, edit the video, and share it as a link. All in one package.

Explain Everything is used and loved by tutors & consultants, trainers & teachers, storytellers & visual learners, business communicators & professionals, and anyone with the drive to explain or present complex concepts and truly connect with their audiences.
