My Take

I think that this is a wonderful app/teaching tool. I love that there are many different ways to use it. I like that kids are able to use a different way to express themselves. I would love it if you were able to import video into this instead of just being able to do photos. As it is I love that it is easy to use (my 1st graders have it mastered), and that it has many different uses. I think that this is a great product!

How I Use It

The uses of this product are endless! I have used it with my 1st graders to generate ideas for writing. I have also used it for math problems and them doing some peer teaching. I LOVE that it is really open ended and that students can use their imagination to create. We used this app the most during writing time. Some of my students with special needs or limited English skills used this product to help during writing time. They could record their story instead of writing down all of the words. They still were able to tell their story but they were able to do it without the frustration of having to write it with paper/pencil.
