How I Use It
I would use this after teaching specific Digital Literacy/Citizenship lessons or any readings that were assigned to my class(es). Students would enjoy this much better than just creating a story/essay on a storyboard worksheet, in Microsoft Word, etc. I also like the fact that any content area teacher/student could use this appropriately and creatively to illustrate learning.
My Take
Useful for grades 5-10 and includes the use of dialogue bubbles, which would be extremely helpful when teaching students to include, as well as to write dialogue within their essays. I just wish it weren't so expensive, since educators/schools have so few funds!
