Tech4Learning announces the release of Share 4.1, an update to its award-winning project authoring tool.
Share helps students demonstrate mastery of the curriculum through performance tasks that combine text, graphics, movies, and animations into web sites, digital portfolios, brochures, and now eBooks! Share 4.1 also adds integration with Google Drive allowing users to gather resources, store project work, publish finished products using Google’s cloud service.
“Adding ePub export, along with the existing HTML5 and PDF, adds yet another real-world publishing option for student work,” explains Melinda Kolk, Director of Professional Learning at Tech4Learning. “Now students using Windows PCs have a powerful authoring tool for creating their own interactive iBooks, whether they are original stories, animated text books, or multimedia magazines; something that previously could only be easily done on a Mac.”
“The integration with Google Drive provides a seamless connection between researching, creating, and sharing,” shares Tech4Learning CEO, David Wagner. “With Share 4.1, students can gather their images, movies, and sounds for their projects and drag them in right from the Library. They can also save Share files to their Google Drive so they can work on projects from school and home.”
Laura Spencer, Coordinator of Instructional Technology for Santee School District in California explains, “When students share their knowledge and understanding by producing authentic products, they are engaged in learning and gain essential digital age communication skills. Share is a must have 21st century tool!”
