How do you use this tool?
I would use this tool as a fun way to brainstorm for writing prompts and to get students thinking about their responses. This would also be really great to use with English Language Learners and provides them with a platform for practicing both receptive (listening) and productive (speaking) skills.
What are its strengths and weaknesses?
Strengths: this app is very easy to use, and can be customized by the teacher to correlate with any literacy unit.
Weaknesses: the free version of this app is pretty limited; however, there is one prompt per category that students can use in the free version.
How do you customize it for your situation?
This app is customizable in the sense that teachers, or students, can create their own prompts using a picture and sentence. Students can create their own profiles where their responses are saved.
Would you recommend it to a colleague? Why or why not?
Yes, I would recommend this to a colleague. This app is great for literacy, as well as for ELL teachers wanting to increase their students language practice in the classroom.
