The team behind Widbook contacted me to see if teachers might be interested in this free digital collaborative reading and writing platform that’s creating a buzz among the teaching, tech and publishing industries. It may be of particular interest to those teachers who are looking to collaborate on writing projects with pupils (or who wish to publish a book with pupils for free this year).
Widbook originally began as a tool for teachers and students to collaborate on projects in a classroom setting, but has also grown to become a free platform for publishing ebooks, reading ebooks from around the world and collaborating and networking with other members and improving writing. The Widbook blog has some ideas on how this platform can be used in schools.
While I haven’t personally used this platform, I feel it may be something that teachers in senior primary classes might be interested in, or indeed post-primary school teachers might equally be interested in this. You can sign up for this free service on Widbook.com
