Since I’m working in the library I love the fact that I get to know new books from different countries and cultures. As a German I grew up with German children’s literature and I feel familiar with that part of the world. Due to this fact I try to take the chance as often as possible to let the students tell me about children’s books from other parts of the world.
I showed the students the app and there immediately loved it. They took a picture of the main character that is often on the cover of book. Then they put themselves in the shoes of the character or just told what happens in that story.
It’s a very easy to use app for students at least from Grade 3 provided that they are kind of familiar with the devise. I usually showed them only once and they knew how to use it. It doesn’t need any logins for the user. The clips are not longer than 30 seconds.
Here are some examples of the students.
