I spend a lot of time visiting schools and talking to teachers about accessing text from tablets. Blue Planet Tales is an app for iPads and Android devices that places interactive texts in the hands of students. Students can read along with the text and there are questions at the end of each book.
Blue Planet Tales is a great choice for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments with a mix of Android and iPad tablets. Students can access a variety of texts straight from their mobile tablet. This app is full of stories that connect to social studies and science topics. Topics include Apollo 11, Davy Crockett and Marie Curie. The app is free to download and each book is purchased individually – users all have the option to sign up for a subscription service.
