The Movenote app let’s you record video alongside documents or pictures to create an integrated video presentation with slides. 

Creating presentations is easy and fast. Simply record video with your device and swipe to synchronize the slides to the video. Presentations are shared by sending a link to the recipient and can be viewed without the app.

First add the material you want to present to form a slideshow. Add pictures from your photo albums or take them directly with your camera. Alternatively bring a document from your mailbox or cloud storage like Dropbox. Also you can combine material from all these different sources. Secondly, record the video and simultaneously change slides by swiping. The recorded presentation will play out with the exact same timing.

From the fine folks at Techsmith, we present you with Screenchomp. It's another simple and effective platform for recording lessons or student reflections around a given topic. Each cast is limited to three minutes, and is stored online. There are some other apps out there like iCabMobile that allow you to download these videos if you click on the Share in Safari link. There are some pretty cool new gestures available through iCabMobile that you should check out.

Another great screencasting type app is Educreations. With little to no need of professional development required, this app is a great platform for having students share their thoughts and ideas WHILE creating at the same time. It reaches multiple levels of proficiency as well as engaging students in a multiple 21st modalities.

Combining screencasting, desktop control, and an interactive whiteboard in one app, you’ll never have to turn your back to the class or audience again. Create a lesson or presentation, insert images, save and edit your project and record a screencast video you can easily save or share. Doceri does it all!

In my opinion, quite simply the best app out there for teachers. The app Explain Everything takes screencasting and interactive presentations to a whole new level. Above the simple annotations available that can be done on PDF's, images and blank  canvases, the use of video and the built in Internet browser is truly phenomenal. Import existing presentations or create one from scratch, this app has it all. 

The laser pointer is a true powerhouse tool as it allows for readers to trace along during reading, while recording their voice so the teacher can easily track their progress. The export options available allow for easy integration into multiple deployments for various educational setups.
