How I Use It
I used the this app with some SPED students that are being mainstreamed into my English 3 class. In subtext teachers and students can exchange ideas as they process the information that they are reading. You can also differentiate your content. Add quizzes too! It is aligned with the Common Core which makes lesson standard alignment easy.
My Take
The students loved it and were extremely engaged in the material. Subtext offers access to many tools like: google books, webpages, free public domain books, ePub, etc... Students can have in-book discussions which are great for students! I loved setting up closed classroom groups. I have not tried everything but I will be tying Book blog next. This app also works with Edmodo.
