How I Use It
As the coach I have used this app as a presentation tool to other teachers and administrators. In using this tool I presented to them how the students would be able to use this in their classes to create projects, engage in group work, take notes and much more! Students are able to use explain everything as an individual, in pairs or in groups. The only issue I have is that it doesn't allow for you to use it on various devices so you can only use the iPad that you began working on initially.
My Take
This tool is one of my all time favorite tools and allows for students to express themselves through all types of media. Adding text, images, video, audio, inserting webpages. Teachers can use this tool as a teaching device while demonstrating the features for them to be able to use on their own. I love this tool and I will be using it as a staple for our venture into BYOD!
