How I Use It
I would use this product in the classroom as a personal journal activity in which the students could choose pictures of their own to describe, I would also use it as a way to convey multi-step directions and even have students create their own multi-step directions for a specific task. This app could also be used as a means of storytelling and improving students reading fluency in which the read a poem or short story aloud with chosen pictures. Lastly, this app would be a great tool to create social stories with.
My Take
I think this is a useful app that can be used in the classroom, especially at the lower levels. I like that it pairs visual with audio and that students who have trouble writing may enjoy being able to express themselves in this way.
