How I Use It
I enjoy this app. I downloaded the story design worksheet from the launchpadtoys.com website. I first do a whole group lesson on how to use the app (it's mirrored on the screen) As a class we go through all the elements of the story arch using the design sheet. After I have modeled and we have created one story and published it to toontube I allow them to do their own. It takes quite a while.
My Take
I enjoy this product because I can reach all learners. There is no spelling needed, just an imagination and a story to tell. It is great for my bilingual learners. I allow them o tell the story in their own language. They absolutely love it.
