Looks very useful for getting students started on writing narratives. After they generate a story, they could then copy the text and work on it to craft their own story.

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Think back to your experiences learning Shakespeare when you were in high school. Rather than simply reading the play, the teacher probably told you that you would be performing it in class. While this sounds like it might be fun, it probably devolved into a few apathetic students standing at the front of the room reading in monotone voices.

Students learn Shakespeare when they perform Shakespeare. They understand his words when they can truly interact with them. Unfortunately, most of our students aren’t actors, and they really aren’t comfortable performing in front of their classmates. How can we get our students to engage with Hamlet & Macbeth in ways that won’t bore or embarrass them?

There are some amazing tools available for iOS devices that will allow your students to create projects that force them to connect with the text in fun and exciting ways.

Very good post... not only for those who want to get The Bard into our students' heads, but also for those who merely want to get their students into reading and acting!!

Animating Your Classroom - iPads in Education | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

" Mobile devices with built-in cameras such as the iPad enable budding animators to use a variety of easy to use animation apps to capture and stitch together photos of characters and objects into seamless, fluent animated movies. Further, the process of designing, scripting and staging animations has tremendous educational potential. Animation can be a wonderful mix of art, science, collaboration and problem solving.
