Teacher Review for Book Creator

Book Creator is one of the most versatile and valuable tools I share with teachers! Students from K-12 in regular education classrooms, special needs classes and ELL classes alike can be successful writers with the amazing built in tools.

How I Use It
This tool is extremely versatile in that it can be used for every subject. As a tech integrator, I help teachers use Book Creator to reach multiple learning goals with a single project, Fluency practice takes on new meaning when students narrate their own writing. Evaluating writing to decide what information/story parts are important for each page and how they can be illustrated is part of the most powerful learning happening while writing in Book Creator. ELL students use it for learning and practicing vocabulary, sharing about their lives and experiences using the 120 supported languages. Reluctant writers, younger students and Special Education/needs students can access the speech to text features to get their words onto the page. Special education teachers, social workers, guidance counselors, speech therapists can use Book Creator in many ways to help write social stories, and stories about their feelings and experiences. I love being able to add video that I create myself with the build in video camera or upload from other sources.
My Take
Book Creator is a tool that can be used by any teacher with any student. It is easy to use and is great for the youngest learners as well as high school students. The accessibility features included are simple to use. When writing, students use high level thinking to determine how their stories or information is presented. What is the main idea for each page and the story? How will they illustrate their ideas? Illustrating is easy with drawing tools and Google's AI drawing tool called Auto Draw. There are just so many features that make Book Creator one of my favorite classroom and personal tools.
