Create stories in Slate using an interface that makes it simple to add text, to choose the right photo layout and to apply curated looks and motion. Scrolling transitions make words and images move for an engaging and exciting read.

With Slate, teachers have a powerful communication tool — they can create beautiful , parent newsletters, class portfolios and more. Students have an easy way to share their knowledge and express their creativity in visual essays, reports, journal entries, portfolios, and science projects. At the same time, they can learn about layout, design and interactivity on the iPad and publishing for multiple devices. Through a simple link to the web, they can share their ideas and knowledge with the world.

"One of the things that I love about Slate is how quickly and easily my students can publish and share their creations.
The interface is so simple, intuitive and user-friendly, that they can just concentrate on telling a good story versus worrying about learning the technology.”

-- Joe Dockery, a teacher from Mount Si High School in Snoqualmie, Washington

Slate is a great companion to Adobe Voice, the app for creating simple animated videos that was named one of the Apple App Store’s Best New Apps of 2014. Like Voice, Slate helps teachers and students focus on telling powerful stories. Both apps are available for free from the Apple App Store, and Slate requires iPad 2 or higher and iOS 8.1.2.

We can’t wait for teachers and students to give Slate a try, so please download the app and share your Slate stories with us!
