Creating Audio Decodable Books with Explain Everything App


Another video showing the many uses of Explain Everything. In this video I show how I use the app to create an audio decodable book “I like ______ ” with my class. The finished product can be printed or the audio book can be shared in many ways. Make sure and check out the noun lesson here. Info on the headphones I use to record the audio from the students can be found here.

**This project could easily be done with the Educreations app as well with the only difference being the finished product would be saved as a link instead of a video to your camera roll.

    I love reading your blog posts and how seamlessly you are able to embed technology with your kindergartners. I do have one question though, when you said you helped kiddos find their images, where do you find your images? Do your kiddos eventually do this part on their own?

    Love this idea. I passed it on. I have a question about the headsets. We ordered a pair, thanks to your review, but now I am hearing crackling sometimes. I thought it was because I moved the mic, but it happens other times as well. Have you experienced this?

    • Matt Gomez says:

      If you are talking about crackling during recording it happens occaionaly but it is from something touching the microphone. I suggest contacting the support at Califone and see if they can help.
