ScribblePress App

ScribblePress is a drawing and publishing app for the iPad that currently is free and I believe may have some possibilities for OT’s.

Features of the app include using 50 templates to create a story as well as features to draw on blank pages or import pictures to make your own. Finished publications can be emailed or published to iBook library. See ScribblePress website for more information and ideas of its use. IT is easy to use and publishe with its clean and simple tools.

ScribblePress does not have an audio recording feature but it does allow text entry for a text story line.

So how might an OT you use ScribblePress?

All kids like to publish and show their work. If you have been working on specific handwriting skills,  letters, numbers, writing their name or drawing pictures, shapes or designs in therapy creating a final project showing their skill might be motivating for your student. The book can be created and emailed or published to iBooks if desired. No audio is present, but creating a simple story with a story line is easy to complete.

Check out ScribblePress. It may not be an app you use all the time but it has possibilities for final projects to show case your best student productions or handwriting samples.

Another OT iTool kit possibility. Any ideas on how you might use it?
