2 min. tech. tip – flipsnack is a cool tool to display student work

As a teacher, I find that there is nothing better than sharing projects from students at the end of term or unit. Not only that, students love seeing their work published whether in a book, website or bulletin board.

One tool I love for sharing is called Flipsnack as this site allows you to create a digital flipbook from any .pdf file. You can either scan documents through our printer as a .pdf or create .pdf’s yourself (i.e. in Word save as a .pdf etc.) Their “Flipsnack” creations can then be shared by a URL or embedded in a web site, blog, wiki or LMS (like our blackboard). Also good to note that there is 15 page maximum for each “free” book. However, my work-around is to create two books for each project and display both the links.

Here is an example from a few Grade Three students.

Another example from the flipsnack team.

The other “snack tools” are excellent too. Here are links for photosnack – an online slideshow creator, filesnack – a quick and easy file sharing service and their newest tool: snack websites – for a high quality website creator. All are free and I think are well-designed.

Doing my best so you’re on the cutting edge!

  2. Useful info. Fortunate me I discovered your site by accident, and I’m surprised why this accident did not came about in advance! I bookmarked it.

  3. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.

    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
