This morning in the AT&T Classroom Miss Wise introduced the second graders to WriteReader, a reading and writing platform designed for elementary students. The platform offers tools that students can use to support the development of their literacy and writing skills to create multimedia ebooks. The platform allows for teachers to create class accounts so that a teacher can check a student’s work and provide feedback or offer assistance. It also offers an integrated safe Google Image Search tool that students can use to locate pictures and photos to include in their books projects. Finished books can be uploaded to the global library for sharing.
The second graders used the digital stories available in the WriteReader platform for Listen to Reading and also used the platform for creating their own stories for Work on Writing.
