Show Me is an interactive Whiteboard App that allows teachers & learners to create presentations called Show Me’s that can be shared via the device, online privately or to a community audience. You can create engaging voice over presentations using text, drawing, photos, images and sounds.
You can also access & use Show Me presentations (covering a wide range of subjects) created by others in the Show Me community. The Show Me interactive whiteboard App is a tool with great potential for teaching & learning.
Open the Show Me App. A blank whiteboard should automatically open, but if it doesn’t click Create to start a new Show Me Whiteboard.
This is your blank Show Me whiteboard. To write or draw with your finger or stylus choose a colour from the colour picker and write on the screen.
