How I Use It
I have used this product to have students create fiction and non fiction stories when given a prompt. I have also used this app to reinforce a concept with students by having them create a book related to a content area they are learning about or as a review at the end of the year where students are given various objectives to create review content for study materials. The books created can be saved on the iPad for other students to read and study with or they can be emailed to students/parents to use at home. Students can also use this app to practice fluency as they can record their voice on the pages.
My Take
Teachers and students enjoy this app because it is very user friendly and easy to use. I like the way students can either upload, take a photo, and/or draw a picture on the pages. They can create text on the page around the images. I would like for the app to allow the student to see the picture as they are typing text (rather than it going to a separate page for the text). For workflow and sharing, it would be great if this app worked with Dropbox to allow all stories to be uploaded from the iPads into one folder for parents/students to access. Overall, this is a great app for checking student understanding in multiple areas of the curriculum.
