Freebee Friday: Software Plus Books
Scholastic, the corporate parent of Tech Tools, is getting into the eBook market with its Storia software. The program includes access to more than 1,000 books already published and many more on the way, including such classics as “Clifford the Big Red Dog." The software runs on PCs and an iPad version is in the works. Storia can not only read and highlight passages to the student, but also comes with interactive elements, quizzes and a visual way to organize a schoolroom worth of virtual books. Storia downloads come with 5 free books.
