with what we do in the JS Library and what is possible in the classroom.
I believe that FOTOBABBLE is an excellent tool for Lower Primary classrooms as it is simple to use as it uses image and audio to create a shareable moment.
It is also web browser friendly, iPad friendly (using an iPhone app) and free!
This is an example of a fotobabble about new resources in the library and the connections to the PYP.
This tutorial about using FOTOBABBLE in the classroom explain the features, as well as some uses for FOTOBABLE in the classroom.
In order to improve the use of resources in the JS Library, the Oliver catalogue has the function of READING LISTS.
All teachers and students have been introduced to this resource.
