How I Use It
I used this app to create some writing prompts when students were working Word/Google Doc skills. I just needed a few quick phrases for students to use to write complete sentences. It worked great.
My Take
I like this tool because it worked for me in a whole class environment, but I could have handed the iPad to a student or group and they could have used it as well. I like versatile tools which pack a lot of resources into one place. There are a wide variety of activities to choose. from.
