Adobe Slate as a Tool in the Elementary Classroom

In my last blog post I wrote about using Adobe Voice in the classroom and today I am writing about using the sister App, Adobe Slate. This app could be used for a variety of projects like explaining a topic, "how to" tutorial, sharing knowledge of a standard including photos of evidence, word work, and anything else that can be shared with photos and text.

Here is the App Store description...


Named App Store Editors’ Choice, Slate lets you turn your next newsletter, report, invitation or travel adventure into a gorgeous visual story that delights readers on any device. Simply tap to select a unique look — beautiful fonts, color and magazine-style design are automatically incorporated. Fluid movement and elegant motion are applied instantly. Share your Slate story link anywhere. Grab attention, increase awareness and inspire action. Stand out.
I suggest creating one teacher account for all students to use in the elementary level because creating an account requires an email address. It is a good idea to use a student friendly password so that the students can log in.
Below is one that I created to share with my students. You can embed your own projects... and here is a link to a 2nd grade student Adobe Slate.
