How I Use It
This is a simple tool for learners of all ages and levels to create interactive books. My students have used it to digitise their paper books and also to create published final pieces of work from their written drafts as well as creating straight into the app. They love the way they can add audio and the pages 'flip' like a real book.
My Take
I love this app and would recommend it to teachers as well as parents for home creative use. I particularly love that this is an open-ended tool that even the youngest students can use with minimal support, my four-year-olds created a digital copy of their paper stories independently after a short demonstration. It has the benefit of being multiplatform and offers a free teacher account where you can publish 40 books - a great way to start out publishing digital books. My only wish is that it was automatic to synch between the iPad and the chrome account, although I currently airdrop so it is a simple workaround.
