[prMac.com] Edmonton, Canada / Bristol, UK - Showbie is an app that makes the paperless classroom a reality, making it easy for teachers to assign, collect and review student work in tablet classrooms. Nothing says paperless classroom better than an ebook - and so Showbie have teamed up with the developers of the best-selling Book Creator app to create a more seamless workflow between the two apps.
With Showbie v1.5.2 you can easily export the books you make in Book Creator to Showbie using the new share function in iOS 8. What's more you can now read your ebooks right in Showbie, meaning teachers can easily read and assess their student's work without needing to switch apps.
Kristi Meeuwse, Apple Distinguished Educator and Kindergarten Teacher in Charleston, SC said: "The best of two worlds come together as users are now able to read their Book Creator books within Showbie! This will facilitate workflow and allow flexibility for students like never before. I am excited about this latest update and can't wait to try it with my kindergarten students!"
