How I Use It
It was used as a part of a grade two unit of inquiry. As part of an inquiry into how stories can engage their audience, communicate meaning and express values. Students used book creator to create a product. Students were able to create and publish their very own e-books. The feedback from homeroom teachers, on reflection, was that this app would require a skills building lesson ahead of its use as a tool for creating e-books.
My Take
It is my opinion that Book Creator gives autonomy to the students and allows the teacher to completely redefine tech integration.
