Shakespeare Tools Rock the ELA Marketplace

Dec 14, 2013

FETCH THY APPS, GOOD SIR: Shakespeare would be proud to see his plays and rhetoric as the subject of so many newly released edtech tools. First up, the Folger Luminary Shakespeare App offers digital versions of Shakespeare's plays, complete with audio performances and commentary by professional actors and scholars. Next, Deeper Richer’s Starting Shakespeare is an elementary school tool out of Australia that supports students using the iPad to write and perform their own Shakespeare material. Anon, go! Enjoy thy technology! Lastly, we bring you WordPlay Shakespeare. “The words and the play” come together on the WordPlay Shakespeare app, where students can read Shakespeare’s plays while simultaneously watching a performance of the play right next to the text. A pair of star-crossed capabilities, if you ask us.
