How I Use It
Book Creator is typically used by students age 6 - 16. It is used regularly by students to create a record of their learning (like their own text book), students work on books individually or in pairs. They make personal books about their hobbies & interests. We've compiled books by combining multiple pages from a whole class of students (a bit time consuming to pull it together, but worth it).
My Take
We like its simplicity. 7 year olds need no more than 5 mins to learn the basics. Super easy to drop in images, hand drawings etc. The fact that it is so quick and easy, can result in rushed or sloppy content (particularly older students who don't take time), however, by focusing the learning on quality, excellent result can be gained. Students enjoy creating content outside of the app (using their favourite tools) and bringing it in. Our older students often want more sophisticated features, but generally we prefer it this way, as it's so accessible to younger learners.
