I spent a lot of time playing with pageflakes and am still a little confused.
I can see the great potential of using it (all your stuff on one page, separate pages for different projects. I calendar page was a great addition. It picked up what I had already added so it is an easy feature to use.
And it would be very easy for the students to listen to feeds, stories or watch videos. But I spent at least a hour and a half over two days and don’t feel I am all that familiar with it.
I loved some of the samples of story read alouds. It would be great to set up a center in the classroom and let the kids listen to stories. They could pick and choose or the teacher could assign and then ask about mail character, plot etc.
