PixiClip is a great new tool tool for creating, narrating, and sharing drawings. PixiClip provides a whiteboard space on which you can draw, upload images to mark-up, and type. While adding elements to your PixiClip whiteboard you can talk and or record a video of yourself talking. In fact, you can't use the whiteboard without at least recording your voice at the same time. Recordings can be shared via social media and or embedded into your blog posts.
PixiClip does not require you to create an account in order to use the service. However, if you want to save your recording to re-visit and edit you will need to create an account. Accounts are free and take less than thirty seconds to create.
Applications for Education
PixiClip could be a great little tool for creating short flipped lessons. You could use the whiteboard to explain how to solve a math problem. You could also upload a map and draw on a map for a short geography lesson. Or you might have students use PixiClip to create short stories based on pictures they took during a field trip.
