Issuu As a Media Format for Student Projects

Even beyond being an publishing opportunity for students to find an authentic audience for their written and visual works, Issuu can provide classrooms with a digital publishing option for group work or independent practice of important content.  Because of its usability and engaging format, Issuu can be a motivational tool that extends the engagement of students with learning tasks.  For example, imagine that you are a history teacher facing the challenge of engaging students in learning about the late Dark Ages.  Facing such a prospect, one teacher used Issuu and tasked his students with creating a "Year in Review" magaizine to chronicle the headlines...a thousand years ago!
