How I Use It
My 5th graders used it last year to create multimedia booktalks for their favorite summer reads. It allowed me to teach them how to use iPads (our first experience in the classroom) as well as how to create concise booktalks that are properly cited.
My Take
Has a small learning curve and Educreations has made some great improvements since I used it last fall with grade 5 classes. It works with students of all abilities and levels. Those who are super creative will figure out how to display their creativity. Those who are more concrete will use it effectively too.
