Students give writing Feedback via iBook

My 7th graders and I compiled an ibook about their Toontastic cartoons and stories that they wrote. You can check out the complete Toontastic Memoir iBook or the previous lesson plan about using Toontastic as a Digital Storytelling tool 

Each student had to read another student's work, and then provide feedback using the iBook's features.

Probably one of the neatest things was to highlight a particular passage, and then insert a note that gave a bit more feedback.

I had the 7th graders take a screen capture of this note, and then show it on Edmodo so that the classmates could see their feedback.

I think iBook has a LOT of potentials, especially when the students can now become content creators and not just content receivers.
