How I Use It
Flipsnack can be a great resources for the flipped classroom teacher. Teachers can take their original content (i.e. notes, PowerPoint, etc.) convert them to a PDF for uploading as a flipbook. Then you can add a variety of media content like videos and audio files to differentiate the instructional content. I think this is ideal when more visual examples, text, and some video content is used. The only thing that concerns me about flipsnackedu is the pricing. With a free account, you are able to have up to 8 student accounts. Teachers will need more than that, especially at the secondary level, but the paid accounts start at $32/month. With the student accounts, students are also able to create flipbooks; however, if you plan to use this as an instructional resource it is best to stick with the free version.
I see this as a great way to provide instructional content for teachers who are flipping their classroom, project instructions, and unit study guides. Students will appreciate the "feel" of flipping through this online book and interacting with multimedia in a structured, organized way. Using a tool like this and sharing or publishing it on your website would make it easily accessible for students who need to review the content, or for parents to assist their child with homework or projects. Overall, it's a great resources for a teacher tool- but the pricing could be more affordable for teachers.
