Christin Lopez's curator insight, October 23, 2014 7:15 AM

This site provides a way to have an online textbook that you can share with students. Even in the free edition, there are upgrade charges for features and more storage, you can create and join classes. 

 

It looks like this has the potential to be a great resource, but I found trouble right away while searching for a couple topics that I currently teach. There are not textbooks that have tags that help me find what I was looking for. This made me question if the information is on the site and not tagged, or is it too new that others have not uploaded information. I thought that the software creators would have obtained copyright privileges for a number of topics to start the site out. They would have been seed ideas to get the ball rolling. For you to upload PDFs, you need to have the copyright permissions. So while the potential is there for individualizing, it is not a quick jump right into it.

Занимательная вещь, способная увлечь детей лет 10-13. Сайт переводит вас к приложению для iOS, собственно только в виде приложения всё и работает. Можно создавать короткие анимированные ролики, записывая свой голос или набирая текст. Объем текста ограничен. Говорят персонажи только по-английски. Полезно будет для напоминания о домашней работе, о различных кратких правилах или исключениях. Ученики могут использовать это приложение на уроках или дома, создавая свои мини-ролики. А им это, безусловно, понравится!

 

Только английский язык.

Use this one to record your presentation along with your lesson ppts and post  them to your website. Students who miss class will be able to get the whole presentation, not just your slides. This would also be helpful to parents helping students with homework as well.
