Shake Your iPad to Generate Story Prompts

Shake Your iPad to Generate Story Prompts | Teaching with Technology; 1 on 1 iPads, Laptops, etc. | Scoop.it

Shake-a-Phrase is a fun iPad app for elementary school and middle school students to use to start stories and practice recognizing parts of speech. Shake-a-Phrase has three basic modes; shake it, story starter, and quiz mode. Each mode has five themes; animals, monsters, fairytales, sports, and random. In “shake it” mode students shake their iPads to have complete, but random sentences appear on their screens. The “story starter” mode presents students with a new random story prompt each time they shake their iPads. In both of these modes students can favorite sentences and prompts to refer to later. Shake-a-Phrase’s quiz mode presents students with random sentences in which they have to identify nouns, adjectives, verbs, conjunctions, and prepositions.

This is powerful and worth the read.

DiAndra Berry's curator insight, September 9, 2013 2:09 PM

I think allowing students to read stories and create their own stories on an ipad is an excellent idea.
