Showbie: the app with so many possibilities

Our school first discovered the Showbie app just over a year ago when working alongside a senior computing colleague who was actually introducing us to Book Creator (another great app).  Since then, we have been exploring how to use it across a range of age phases from Year 2 to Year 6.  The video below, from the Showbie website, gives a quick overview of what it does and how it can be used.

There are many great benefits of Showbie, including: the app and sign up are free (you can pay for a pro version); it is cloud based so children can share learning they do at school with home and vice-versa; you can provide different kinds of feedback, including voice messages; it is compatible with many other apps and ultimately is easy to use!  Furthermore, it has a brilliant blog with plenty of examples of how Showbie is being used in classrooms around the world.
