How I Use It
The German teachers in our school had her classes write a book about their family. There were to include photos of family members and write the book's entire content in German. Once students created their book they also had to add voice over to every page that included the students reading the sentence in German and then translating that page into english. Students were extremely engaged in this assignment and once they finished their book they gained a deeper understanding of the language. Once every student had completed their book they exported it to iBooks and AirDropped their book to the teacher. She now has a library of their creations for future enjoyment.
My Take
This app is great for all subjects, but our World Languages department loves this app. It is so easy to use and exports easily into a PDF or right into iBooks for publication or sharing.
