How I Use It
This app is for performance assessment. Students may create their stories in to book format adding voice and pictures by following rubrics. Rubies need to be specific to lay out expectation of words/vocabulary use, sentence patterns, word count and topic. Unless this is a 1-1 classroom, otherwise, students need to work in stations and using Book Creator is one of the station. Typing in Chinese is a bit challenge when using iPad. So students need to use another app for typing and copy paste over to Book Creator.
My Take
It is a great tool to differentiate learning. The rubrics should have a section to encourage creativity for enrichment.
