Learnist Educator Review

You can use Learnist to create boards of articles, images, video, and other media for a course, a particular novel, time period, math concept, or anything else to help students explore content (or even to provide them a launching pad for a larger project). Project the board on a screen and you can create a lesson around it. Students who have accounts can then add your lessons to their own boards, share them with friends, and organize them however they wish. You could even ask that students create a Learnist board instead of a bibliography for a research project, citing their sources visually as well as with text.

When they finish with assignments, kids can also create "fun" boards that you could also incorporate into class time, allowing them to share their hobbies and interests with the rest of the class (and maybe teaching a little something as well!). iSummary Lite: Summarize Articles, Scans and more! on the App Store.

This is the equivalent of taking a table saw and cutting off the bottom few inches of a book, then trying to read it. It's incomprehensible! I contacted customer service about it -- and they were useless. They told me I needed to put it in fullscreen mode -- which I did, and that didn't fix the problem. They also recommended I read the books/articles on my computer, meanwhile the reason I got this service to begin with, was so I could do research on-the-go on my tablet.
