East Noble School Corporation’s membership to Big Universe also includes a writing tool. However, we as a district have unfortunately not taken advantage of it as it is not available on our iOS devices. However, teachers could utilize the computer labs, or have students publish from their home computers. Prior to becoming a 1:1 school district, I had students publish from their home computers frequently. Many teachers would be surprised by how many students actually have access to computers at home.
Please make students aware of this opportunity even if you are not making it a whole class activity.
