What do you like best?
I used Haiku Deck for a QR code poetry project with 3rd graders on iPads. The interface is straight forward and it helps younger students understand how to navigate/choose options in a software program. Since I have used it, they have expanded their choices of photos from their gallery. You can also upload your own photo. The students enjoyed choosing a visual to match their content and that they could view their deck online via a laptop to show others.
I have not specifically used it for intervention or special ed, but I think that this would be a good program for these areas. I have used it for ESL. Having students practice sentence, grammar, vocabulary by creating a deck are just a few ideas. The key is to use mutliple times with students, so they become comfortable and confident with the the tool.
What do you dislike?
When I used it, Haiku Deck was new, so the interface was a bit buggy when students updated and saved content at times. Some students had to do their deck over again, since it did not save their changes. Not sure if this is still an issue anymore.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Education is a great area for this product. Businesses have many options, but I think if you had to put together a presentation quickly, Haiku Deck has style and design built in that can bring your message across.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
This product is good for creating short, impactful presentations, teaching students software that has common functions found in many other programs, use for practice of concepts, vocabulary, ESL. Having a saved gallery students can refer to as well is nice.
