I’m a big fan of the storytelling app Adobe Voice. If you’ve attended one of my workshops this year you know I can’t stop talking about how powerful and easy it is to use. Adobe has just released an amazing new storytelling tool that is just as exciting. Adobe Slate is an iPad app that lets users of all ages create stories that can be viewed on any web browser. Combining text, images and hyperlinks, students can transform research reports, persuasive writing, digital portfolios, you name it.
Adobe Slate is truly a creation tool and fits perfectly with my message of Tasks Before Apps. With this app students can create content for authentic audiences and share their work with the real world. The final product is truly beautiful and introduces students to the concept of web publishing and design.

Canaryflow is designed to help teachers and students follow a simple workflow inside and outside of the classroom. With this tool a teacher creates a lesson, adds an assignment, and schedules the lesson. Students access the lesson and assignment, and submit the work for the assignment. The teacher then collects the assignment, annotates and grades the assignment, and publishes grades. Students can then review grades and annotations.
Canaryflow makes it simple for students to submit work using their camera, PDF files, Google Drive, or Dropbox. Teachers can tap the screen to access assignments and provide feedback. The interface makes it easy for both teacher and students to stay organized. There is an integrated grader feature that makes teacher feedback manageable for users, as well as the ability to work offline.

If you’re familiar with multi-level books, you’ll want to check out Books That Grow. Books That Grow is a free digital reading platform with a library of books that range from myths and folktales, to primary source documents and informational texts. Whether you want to teach the Greek myth “Arachne” or Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter From a Birmingham Jail,” Books That Grow has you covered.
The best part about Books to Grow is that every book can be read at 3-5 different levels of text complexity. Teachers can differentiate instruction by allowing them to assign the same reading to a class of mixed ability students, while permitting these students to learn at their own level, and make steady gains in their reading skills. Teachers can also create classrooms in the app, monitor the books their students read, and adjust their set reading levels by book or by student.
