How I Use It
I love using Book Creator! This app is reliable and so incredibly easy to use for students and teachers! I teach a STEM program for grades 1-6 and across the grade levels I have been able to differentiate how my students use Book Creator to showcase their learning. Since this app is focused on creation, you can use it with any curriculum. My students have created memory books, how- to books, ABC books to support a science unit, research, a drafting tool in writing, a math notebook, and as an electronic portfolio! My students are able to be creative as they communicate, collaborate and show their learning. Book Creator is a great app to capture formative assessment data! Seriously, you can use this app for just about anything you want!
My Take
My overall opinion of Book Creator as a teaching tool is that this app is rock solid. One area I would strengthen would be the images that students can add in. It would be great to have more choices for kids. This can help to save time if you don't want students looking outside of the app. It would also be great if the pages could be viewed as multiples. I would like to see 4 pages, of good size on the screen. I think this could help students when they are planning their story.
