How I Use It
I used this app with a group of fifth grade students who were learning about the Atom. Each child used the app on an iPad and created a 4-page book about what they knew about atoms. They learned how to create a title page and pull a picture from Google. They also learned how to add text and color to their pages. At the very end of class, students had to share their book with me by emailing it. This app was very user-friendly and the students created a book and shared it with me in a 45-minute class period. I would definitely use this app again with other sets of students!
My Take
Book Creator is a great app to use with all levels of students. This app can be used as a project tool or a lesson enhancement tool. It was very easy to learn how to use it and the students loved creating their own book. Once the book is completed, students can upload their creation to iBooks or email their books to their teachers or friends. Students are able to show what they have learned about a topic and create a book about it.
