In the classroom
With an iPad and an Apple TV you can show your students exactly what you're doing, close-up.
When you're in full flow, there's no need to stop and slowly write text.
Just draw a line, say what you want it to say, hold for a moment, and your text appears.
The text will automatically fit the length of your line, so you can go as small or big as you like.

Video Pencil for Medical Teaching
"Video Pencil has fundamentally changed the way I teach, lead, present and interact with my audience in Zoom. Being able to see my program output in Video Pencil on my iPad and then telestrate right on the screen is HUGE! Kudos to Michael for developing an indispensable tool to enhance my workflow." - David Paskin (Torah Tech Guy)
“I have one word for the Video Pencil app: brilliant! I used Video Pencil with Ecamm and I loved what I could do. So easy to use. I could actually see where I was drawing on the screen. I did a session for grades 1 and 2 students about how shapes can be the building blocks for faces and they were over the moon with the demonstration. My favourite moment was hearing the question “how did you do that?” Thanks, Video Pencil for helping me level up my virtual presentations." – Marty Chan (Author, Playwright)
"Have Telestrator, Will Travel I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had with this app and using it to diagram out sports plays, put online courses together with a more “human” touch, and go all-out telestrator mode live via Ecamm. This app is one of the best values out there and the customer service and response time is fantastic. Highly recommend for all educators and sports fans." - BeGroovee - App Store Review
