Scribble Press for iPad: Features for Teachers

February 13, 2012 at 8:47 pm 5 comments

Scribble Press for iPad has been available less than two months and is already in use in classrooms around the world!  We’ve heard from teachers

Students using Scribble Press for iPad

in California and New York, in Australia and Nebraska, in Canada and Tennessee, all of whom are using this App with their students to create, share and even print books.  See what one third grade class did with the App here

Here are some tips for teachers about using Scribble Press for iPad:

You can create group accounts.  Visit our Group Account Page to set up student accounts without an email address.  These will work in the App and will allow you to privately share books the class creates on a dedicated landing page.

You can create and share books on iBooks, via email and via the web at no charge.  Books can be downloaded as an epub to any e-reader or read from a web broswer.  Once your students create their books, you can privately share them with the class, other classes, and friends and family through a variety of media – right from the App.

Your students can incorporate photos and other images in their books.  Any images stored in the photo gallery of the iPad can be brought into the App, and on iPad 2 students can take new photos as they are creating their books.

Educator communication and support.  We want to hear from teachers about your experiences using Scribble Press App.  Please email us at educators@scribblepress.com  and we would appreciate your comments and tips for your fellow teachers be added here.

 

What’s coming.  We’re working on some great new features, including improving our web-side support and sharing options, easier purchase options for printed books, adding great new content and tools to the App and making the editing process more flexible.  Look for our next big release in the spring.

In the meantime, happy scribbling!

    We just started using it with my elementary ESOL students. I’ve also been sharing the app in my iPad workshops with other schools. I think this is a great way to promote our budding Authors and Illustrators. So many possibilities. I just started to try your group option for educators… nice new feature!

    I love Scribble Press for iPads!! Can you tell me how to make images bigger? I see someone has made a book with bigger pictures than mine.
    Thank you for this wonderful ePub!!

      To make images bigger, take a finger from each hand and tap and hold down while spreading out the two fingers. My students will sometimes fill a page with a picture and then color a box behind the text so it shows up in front of the picture. Changing the color of typed text would be a great addition. Just finished working with a 2nd grade group and had all of their works of art show up in their teacher’s private online shelf. They loved it!

    Our first graders are really enjoying writing and illustrating Happy Mother’s Day books. I created a group so all of our books would be on the same 1H bookshelf, but I can’t figure out how to upload them to that group. I have logged into my account on in the App. I am sure I am missing one simple step. Anyone have success with adding books to a group you created?
