Shadow Puppet Edu App for Content Creation

My latest goal has been to find apps and websites that help teachers to "teach above the line", in reference to reaching the upper levels of the SAMR model of modification and redefinition.  Specifically, I'm looking apps that allow students to share their learning in a personal and creative way.  Shadow Puppet Edu fits that bill.  In a nutshell, students and teachers can create short presentations with videos and images, record a narration over the top, and then share.  During the creation process they can also draw on the images and add text where needed.  Here is a blurb from their iTunes page:

STUDENTS CAN:
∙ Present a project or describe an experience
∙ Search Library of Congress, NASA, Met Museum, Creative Commons, and more for images to explain an idea 
∙ Develop digital storytelling skills
∙ Demonstrate understanding of a concept for assessment 
∙ Improve speaking skills or practice reading aloud

TEACHERS CAN:
∙ Create mini-lessons for blended learning or flipped classroom 
∙ Develop more engaging prompts for assignments or discussions
∙ Provide examples of final projects


Here is a sample

There are also another competitor called SpeakingPhoto (iPad & Android)
