Mixbook for Educators

Have you ever thought about using a digital scrapbook in the place of a traditional book report? This would also be a great tool for students to create their own storybooks or informational text journals. Mixbook is a powerful suite of completely customizable digital storytelling tools that can make this happen. It was originally designed as a digital scrapbooking site, but Mixbook can be a wonderful way to engage your students in the classroom. Your students can learn to write interesting and colorful e-books that can be created individually or collaboratively with a real-world tool.
