Description: Shadow Puppet Edu is a utility app which allows students and teachers to make engaging presentations and slideshows out of photos, videos, sound clips and voiceovers. Users can start a new presentation, select their library of visual content, add animated text and background music and then record themselves going through the presentation, commenting on the images in front of them and using a range of annotative tools to give more visual feedback and a sense of interaction.
