5 Great Presentation Apps for Students

Best Presentation Apps for Students

One of the keys to a successful presentation is communicating ideas and information in a steady manner. These five mobile apps help students with organization, brainstorming and the delivery of speech or project presentation.

Explain Everything™ (iPad, iPhone, Android Tablet)

Explain Everything teaches students to better communicate ideas. Students will think more critically when they have to explain a concept to others. They can record and annotate over multiple pages (slides) and then export their project as a video to the camera roll on the iPad. Once the video is in the camera roll, it can be used with other iPad apps. The project can also be saved as a PDF file and can be exported to be read in iBooks!

i-Prompt Pro (iPad, iPhone, Android Tablet)

Public speaking can be a nerve-racking task for people of any age, and i-Prompt Pro for Android devices is the perfect app for middle school students preparing to give a presentation. With so many ways to customize a teleprompter, this app is a great choice for children who want to practice a speech or oral report. i-Prompt Pro turns Android tablets into a teleprompter. Users simply enter the text that they would like to see scroll across the screen. Children have lots of choices in the settings include font, text size and background color. Kids can alter the scrolling speed to fit their comfortable level as they practice giving a speech.

Timeline 3D – Create and present timelines (iPad, iPhone)

This app helps a student create a polished timeline for a project. More than that, its interface is easy to use, edit and publish. The app also has mirroring capability that allows the presenter to see the timeline on their phone while projecting from or presenting from another device if they chose. It provides a fast, easy and fun way to document a field trip, lab experiment, a class play, art portfolio or historic event. Students can either capture pictures on their iOS device or get pictures from web sources like the National Archives. The collecting, choosing, editing and sequencing of visuals is an important way to reflect on an experience or a event and make new observations or develop a deeper understanding (short term to long term memory storage).

Educreations Interactive Whiteboard (iPad)

This app is simplistic and user-friendly. Lessons can be stored privately, publicly (on the Educreations website) or, for educators, to a class or school. A student can easily create a presentation that includes pictures, text and freehand drawings. The app has four basic colors with a single pen size. Numerous slides can be added to the presentation, and pictures can be imported from device’s library, camera, Dropbox or web search. Another nice feature is that some backgrounds like lined, graph or coordinate grid paper. A free user account must be created to share your presentations.

Nearpod (iPhone, Android Tablet, Android Handheld)

Some learning events are best managed, paced and directed by the presenter. Nearpod puts the teacher or the student presenter in control of their audience’s mobile device screens and allows them to assess in real time. An effective presenter is an expert that knows his audience’s knowledge and experience level, what the audience needs to know and how to get them there. A good presenter combines this expertise and special knowledge with passion, personality and interaction with their audience. This app allows the presenter to control what is displayed on their audience’s iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Tools are provided for display of PowerPoint-type slides, webpages, polls, open-ended questions, videos, quizzes and more.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
