Teacher Review For Book Creator

Good for projects and e-portfolios, but best used with content created in other apps.

How I Use It
I use this as a place to bring together work created in other apps to make one final product. I find the tools available a little uninspiring and rather have the children create their work in other apps and then import it into 'Book Creator' to produce a final product. It's also great as an e-portfolio tool- the children can take pictures of work throughout the year and add it to their book as the year progresses. They can also record speech as they reflect on their work and add that to the pages.
My Take
Does exactly what it is supposed to; enables children to make ebooks which are viewable across a variety of platforms. Easy for children of all ages and abilities to use. Multiple applications.
