Shakespeare In Bits

So the second offering I've got for you from the BETT trade show is "SHAKESPEARE IN BITS", this is an innovative way of reading / seeing/ studying Shakespeare.

The creators have pain stakingly created a flash animated version of Romeo and Juliet & Macbeth. But that's not all, what's innovative is that you can have access to the text on screen at the same time, you can visually see how charaters are related to each other, you can visually see the role the characters play with in the plot, great for people with visual learning styles. There is easy visual scene selection, roll over margin notes explaining key themes, historical references, language etc.

And the program is available for mobile devices, Ipads as well as the normal PC/MAC market.

A real multimedia teaching tool check it out for yourself at
