Explain Everything has added integration with Box as it continues to be one of the most flexible and open-ended design tools for the iPad. Users can create dynamic and interactive lessons, activities, assessments, tutorials, and meeting materials by bringing in materials from their Box account, using Explain Everything's flexible and integrated design, and then saving those materials back in a Box account. This integration recognizes Box's commitment to collaboration and creativity when dealing with increasingly mobile work and learning spaces.
Explain Everything can also be used as an interactive whiteboard using the iPad2 video display or by connecting to an Apple TV. This integration will open up myriad possibilities for users as they seek ways to connect their different applications and optimize workflows when using the iPad.

Regularly in the top 50 of paid Educational iPad apps in the US, Canada, Australia, Finland, and the UK, including holding the #1 spot in several of those markets at times, Explain Everything is seeing tremendous growth in both education and business markets.

The article is titled "Screencasting: Exploring a Middle School Math Teacher's Beliefs and Practices Through the Use of Multimedia Technology."
I am going to start cross posting some of the entries from the Explain Everything Showcase which has been taking up much of my blogging time. The video below shows how you can use Explain Everything to highlight text from an imported document. The text is from a filler site called 'Bacon Ipsum.' The app now has over 30,000 users which is really exciting.
