How I Use It
This app can be used as a formative assessment to finalize a students written work and bring it to life. I used this app for a hearing impaired student that struggled with spelling due to being unable to hear letter sounds. He was able to speak his story rather than having to write it out and becoming fristrated.
My Take
I love using this app with my students. It encourages them in their writing and has increased their desires to write stories. On the SAMR scale I would rate this as the modification stage because students create the product. It enriches it beyond a written story or presentation. Students are able to share and publish their final products.
