How I Use It
As a distance educator, I use this tool on a daily basis to foster student interaction with texts. Integration with Google allows me to import any document or internet article and quickly and efficiently create interactive texts. By embedding questions that I create, I am able to monitor student understanding in three classrooms instantly. This tool has also created more opportunity for meaningful writing in response to reading, and allows me to give immediate, individualized feedback to all students. I don't know how I would do what I do without this tool.
My Take
This is a tremendous tool for teaching literacy in any subject area. Easy to set up and use, and incredible powerful.
