As you well know, I am an app addict and a bit of an app hoarder. Always seeking new and innovative ways to share my app-thusiasm and appy hours, I was thrilled when I came across this iPad E-mag in an original Apps in Education post. Tucking it away until I found time to play… and blog, I decided to share the e-mag as well as my tech bucket list of resources for creating a similar one for the techchef4u kitchen and patrons.
Kudos to Laura Wright for compiling this book of “essential apps for elementary age children” in such a beautiful and informative publication.
Tech Bucket List: As I am inundated on a daily basis with cool tech resources that I would like to explore or integrate into lessons or professional development resources, I created an online repository to house said tools. Noting that a few drops in my tech bucketwere tools for e-publication, I felt this might be the perfect time to share a few that I plan to explore and utilize to create virtual and interactive resources for app-related lessons and professional development.
- Themeefy: allows you to create your own personalized themed magazines
- Grisker: publish content in a magazine style
- Openzine: make your own magazine
- Simplebooklet: create and share multi-page booklets
Please note these tools are on my bucket list: I have not reviewed or explored these e-publishing tools further than “wow these are really cool tools and I must reserve some time to play with them in the future.”
If anyone has used any of the 4 tools listed above (or has others to share), I would love to hear your review or see what a final product looked like.
