Transforming Student Reading with Subtext and the iPad
Learn how the iPad app Subtext can transform curriculum at all levels, allowing students to connect to and discuss literature and PDF articles in real-time. This app engages students in reading in innovative and exciting ways, and allows teachers to reach their students on many levels.
