MOBI Creative Use #2: Reading

A third grade teacher uses the MOBI frequently. One way that she uses the MOBI is to highlight passages as she reads it to students. She can show her students her thinking as she reads the piece. The multiple colors and ease of marking help her engage and connect with students.


Scan in the passage.

  1. Open up the file
  2. Open IW and click on the Pen
  3. Change pen colors to engage and instruct


  1. Find passages online, and use those, rather than scan the pages in.
  2. Print out copies of IW file to give to students who were absent
  3. Allow students to read a piece that have already read before to the class and show their thinking as they read it.
