I've been experimenting and checking out Tapestry over the last few months. It is a unique way to present text and images. Simpler than powerpoint, less dazzling than Prezi but lovely in its own way and with many strengths.
It's really easy to use or make one. Basically, to read, you just click the screen/image and you'll get the next line of text or slide. To make one, you can arrange the text, upload an image and quickly make a dazzling presentation. Here's one a teacher made that is a good example.
I can see teachers using Tapestry in several ways.
1. Make your own presentations just like you would with PPT. Present your lesson materials with Tapestry and students can access them. (but you'll need to be connected to the internet).
2. Get students to write stories, present projects using Tapestry. This is a simple tool that students will enjoy using.
3. As a reader. The app makes it really easy for students to make an instant library of books that they can read on their smart phone.
I've always championed The Tarheel Reader and it still has its strengths (you can download and use them offline + edit/remix). However, take a look at Tapestry and see what you think! Here's one I made, a poem. Also love this one!
