How I Use It
I use this to create interactive workbooks for my pupils where they can access a range of materials as well as support and challenge all in the one engaging place. I also ask pupils to create learning logs where they can share their understanding of topics and lessons in a variety of ways that best suit their learning styles or caters to their preferred way of working. This is really easy for students of all ages and abilities to pick up how to use and so they can then create interactive and engaging products of their own. It is also really easy for staff to learn to use and so is low stake high reward in the classroom environment.
My Take
I love this app as a teaching tool. I like that you can start from templates to give some scaffolding but also ideas and then also make ones from scratch to fully give pupil/teacher autonomy and creative licence. I particularly like the embedding of Youtube videos that means pupils do not need to leave the app to watch and so limits distractions. It really does cater to all learning styles and pupils preferred ways of sharing their understanding which leads to high engagement and increased outcomes.
