How I Use It
Write About This would be a great tool for independent or assigned writing. As a librarian, I would love to use it to have students write reading inspired pieces supported by this app. My only concern is that one would need to be in an 1:1 iPad environment in order for students to save and retrieve their work. However, it would make a great archive for writing inspiration, brainstorming, and written pieces.
My Take
I loved this product because it addresses to many areas of differentiation and modalities of learning. It is colorful, visual, auditory, and creative. I would encourage any educator to give it a try with students of all levels and needs. Well worth the $3.99.
