Your students will absolutely love the audio help, recognizing at once that it is the voice of a child. We have seen kindergarten age kids publishing their own voice over photo, and videos to their blog independently within 5 minutes of being handed the ipad with our app - it’s quite a sight to see! As a fellow early years teacher said, “You guys have thought of everything.”
Don’t forget, this app will also allow you to post pretty much ANYTHING on the camera roll to the class blog - so say goodbye to emailing those Puppet Pal movies and Explain Everything videos. This app absolutely moves the emphasis from technology to creation and content, allowing your students to focus on what’s important.
What do teachers think?
"Just wanted to tell you some exciting news! I had three teachers at my house today and showed them my edublogs site (which they were excited by) but then I showed them your app and how BASIC and easy it was for early years kids to blog, and well they were falling over themselves to get your app and begin blogging. They thought blogging was for upper primary and was too hard but I showed them your app and they were literally jumping out of their skins! I’m going to promote this app to everyone I know! I’ve never thought blogging could be so easy for kids (and teachers!)."

Awesome app for early learners and for EVERYBODY!
I love this app! It is so easy to use. It's very intuitive for early learners: a quick show of the steps and they pick it up and run with it! What a great way to show and document learning! This app makes uploading evidence to a student blog easy and fast with just a couple of quick steps. Gone are the days where I would laboriously video or photograph each kid, get them to write or record their learning, upload the files to my computer, then either slowly upload each one to a blog or sometimes even have to convert formats or reload or whatever. Time consuming and tedious. I often neglected my blog in order to avoid the stress of the process of uploading the documentation. With this app, the children are learning and reflecting, recording and documenting with photos, videos, text, voice-overs all in one go. When they are satisfied with their result, they click a button and it's immediately sent to their blog (with a brief stop for moderation by the teacher, of course!) My students are going home at night and sharing their blogs with their parents. This app offers almost "in-the-moment" learning and sharing. It's been really useful with my ESL students who go home and discuss their conceptual understandings with their parents in their mother tongue. Invaluable feedback and learning opportunities arise from the use of this simple little app! I love it!
Update: SUPER excited about the new update to fix my wordpress video problem, but it still doesn't work :/ Am I doing something wrong?
I like this app a lot. It's very easy to use. I have 5 year olds using it.
I do have problems with the video option. Every time I export a video to my blog I get an error message. If I could get the video to work this app would be super super awesome! Any suggestions?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
