Subtext is a collaborative reading app that provides teachers with a platform to embed their own great instruction right in the pages of books, articles, and PDFs. It allows teachers to make student groups, interact collaboratively with the reading, ask comprehension questions and add additional visual information to expand student comprehension of reading material. With Subtext, teachers can address all learning styles and easily differentiate instruction. It works seamlessly with GAFE so students and teachers can paste reading passages into Google Docs for easy reading reflections and learning moments- empowering connected learning experiences. Subtext bridges the gap between reading and text dependant writing. If you are not reading with Subtext, by the end of this session you will be ready to use it in your classroom. Subtext is pure educational bliss for teachers. Subtext is available on the iPad, Edmodo and the Web today. Bring your iPad to this hands-on demo-and-do session to learn how to integrate Subtext into your classroom.
