How I Use It
Book Creator is great for any time you want students to respond to any type of writing prompt, retell a story, give directions or outline the steps of a project. Students love pulling in pictures, recording their voice and drawing to create their ebooks. The auto draw tool helps kids who might be hesitant to draw. Teachers can have each student contribute a page to a book, or create their own entire book.
My Take
This is an excellent teaching tool because of it's versatility. Teachers can use it to assign any type of project it could be done as a whole class project, or small group project or individual project. Students can write all about me books, they can reflect on science topics, or they can model a math skills. The possibilities are endless! This take students beyond consuming information, as they are CREATING products. I especially appreciate the wonderful support site that Book Creator has. They answer questions readily and they have a lot of support documents available. Book creator can be an invaluable resource for teachers!
