I spent my Saturday morning learning how to use a new tool for my language classes and I'm pretty happy with the results! We are currently studying sentence diagramming and some students are struggling with the concept. Sentence diagrams are difficult without a great previously-laid foundation in the parts of speech. So, I set out to find a better way to contain the information so that it looks like a book. Simple Booklet makes it fairly easy to accomplish.
You can use this tool across a huge variety of Internet landscapes. It adapts to mobile devices like tablets and phones. It can be emailed, shared, embedded; you name it, Simple Booklet can probably do it.
I needed a tool in the cloud to supplement our main resource, my language website. Using Simple Booklet fits in easily as a gadget to Google Sites. It's free with ads (not annoying ads, either) but the cost per year is only $20, which is cheap. I bit and purchased.
There is also login availability for students with Google Apps. This means that my students can login with their Google accounts and build their own booklets. As always, application is the best way to learn, so now I'm envisioning how we can use this in our curriculum. I'll need another Saturday...
