So much for the traditional book report! Students in Ms. Lance’s language arts class at King Arts in Evanston, Ill. completed a group project by using an app to create their own podcasts. After meeting regularly as a group to discuss the book, the groups met to work on their podcasts. Each student was required to have a speaking role in the podcast, and using this tool allowed every student’s voice to be heard.
