Easy enough for 3rd graders!
Showbie is an exceptional teaching tool. It allows for students' creativity to flow and allows them to have choice in their assignments. I can also give feedback individually using Showbie for individualized instruction as needed. This keeps me on my toes with better ideas of how the students are learning. One drawback is it sometimes takes mulitiple steps to load something to Showbie, but as a teacher and knowing this you definitely have to walk through each step with the class first!
How I Use It
Throughout the past 2 years I have used Showbie as a learning system for my students to turn in their work to me. After step by step direction my students quickly got used to turning in assignments on the ipads through Showbie. We were able to use a multiple of apps in assignments and then be able to upload it to Showbie. Some of these include Pic Collage, Book Creator, Pages, Keynote, iMovie and many more. This also allowed for my students to have choice in their assignments. I can not be more satisfied with Showbie and didn't have any problems. As I begin my 3rd year, with 1:1 ipads I can not wait to use it again!
