How I Use It
This app is perfect for allowing students to be authors of their own books. It can be used with any content area and allows students to write, share and reflect on the work that they're doing. They can embed media from other sources, and record their voices as they create. The free version allows you to create one book at a time, which allowing all media to still be used. Students can write about a topic, include drawings and images from other sources, and record what they've written in multi-page books. It's great for individual work or for students to create and collaborate on group books.
My Take
This app is a must have for the elementary classroom! It's a great app for creating work in all content areas. You can use it for assessment and portfolio work to see that your students are getting what they're learning. It would be great to be able to work on more than one book at a time with the free version, but other than that it works great! It's very user friendly and intuitive for all students!
