    Mixbook is a quick and easy way to build a scrapbook or flipbook or just a basic picture book out of images and text. Students could illustrate a project or create a flipbook about themselves. It’s simple to use. It allows users to upload images, arrange the on pages, add text captions, and share the final product.

    Mixbook is a great tool that is simple and easy to use. Traditionally, my students need to write a research paper about an ELL student and their experience learning a second language. This semester, I have included MIxbook as an option to present their interview findings. This tool will allow for them to re-tell the students’ experience by creating a flip book. These will be shared in class in small groups. However, adding the visual component to this will really be powerful! Instead of just discussing and analyzing the experiences, they will be able to see them! Unfortunately, you cannot add audio or music like Smilebox which is why I rated this a four. An Early Childhood example of their Vitual Childhood Scrapbook is this: http://www.mixbook.com/photo-books/baby/virtual-child-scrapbook-7454190 I will be adding my ELL sample after this semester! Have fun with this tool!
