Read Ups is a site where teachers can set up a chat room to discuss any form of student reading from literature to informational text.
A ReadUp is a social reading experience. Think of it as meeting up inside a book.
ReadUps uses a web-based reading system for tablets and laptops. Create a ReadUp event and invite friends to read with you for a limited amount of time, sharing comments on paragraphs. It’s free. Distributed. Ephemeral. Give people the URL to your ReadUp and you’re good to go! When allotted time runs out, the ReadUp disappears. #simple #social #disruptive
