How I Use It
I would use this app as a reinforcement component or introduction to core content subject matter. It would be a nice addition to a learning center environment. Because the app provides an auditory component, it wold be a useful tool to support struggling readers. It does not have an interactive component to the students experience is very passive.
My Take
Overall, this is a nice resource even though it is not as interactive as some other story resources. It would serve students who struggle with reading or are in an ELL environment.
