How I Use It
I have demoed this all in my role as professional learning consultant. Students create their own digital story on any given topic, including any of images, text, drawings voice and video. Students just love the fact that they are authors of their own books, and no matter what their learning needs are, this all allows them to experience success! Their digital stories save as epubs and can be shared easily.
My Take
Available on iOS, Android and Win8.1/10 so it's not limited to just one platform - great in a BYOx context. It allows for the combination of multiple modes of literacy which is vital for being successful in 21C. So far I have always used it for students to create but there is no reason why educators could not use it to create content (except we do that all too often, and knowledge creation is such an important 21C skill to acquire for our students). However, this app is simply a tool, so teachers need to still plan their learning activity carefully to ensure students are engaged.
