Hello, educators, and welcome to another edition of Teacher Tips. This week we're going to explore the iPad application bContext. BContext allows you to create videos by adding voice, text, and drawing over top of almost anything you do on your iPad. You can start with a PowerPoint, website, or even a blank canvas, and then record your voice and iPad interactions to create instructional videos. You can then send these videos easily to students in a variety of ways including social media. This tool can be essential for a flipped classroom in order to help create digital lessons.
Or as a new idea, try giving students feedback by reviewing student work inside of bContext. Using the student work as a background, you can highlight, draw, and talk through potential revisions. Then, simply send each student a video file with one on one instructions of how they can improve. While this application functions similar to other popular video recording apps, like Explain Everything, bContext is incredibly quick in how it compiles the videos. And bContext even hosts the videos for you on their own network. Let's go ahead and dive into how to create videos on the iPad, using bContext.
