How I Use It
This product is very basic to use, which is great, as I'm working with K-2 students. The kids can use pictures they take and/or find them in the included resources. They can then narrate their story, even if they can't spell words yet. For the older, more advanced kids, they can also put text on the pictures, as needed. This app allows for student driven projects at a young age. It could also be used for older students who need something fairly basic to express themselves with.
My Take
I really like this app! I can use it as a teacher to create basic slide shows almost on the fly, use it with my younger students to help them express themselves through pictures and narration, and use it with my special education students to allow them to share their thoughts too. As an integrator, versatility is a plus in any application I select for our devices.
