I simply could not help scooping the BaiBoard app (sentiment towards the name of the tool) but I also see it as a perfect tool for real-time presentation of collaborative work done by a group of students. The app offers you a zoomable multi-page whiteboard and lets you collaborate even on PDF documents. And it is free!

Looks interesting - just wonder if it will be useful for our sessions. I'll need to think of a suitable purpose before I suggest it as an app for our ipads.

Martin Karlsson's curator insight, October 4, 2013 6:46 AM

I have to try it.

Critics often pan them, but first-person essays will always have a strong audience because they reassure us we are OK in spite of our missteps.

Sharilee Swaity's curator insight, August 24, 2013 7:47 PM

Sometimes those personal stories we record privately in our journals can turn into stories for the whole world to read. This article encourages writers to share personal stories -- because people still like to read them.
