How I Use It
Using Book Creator is like giving a microphone to your kids. They love to hear that their voice can be heard by many people outside their expectation. They love how the app can be so personal showing their thinking. I work with lower grade level who want to capture all their picture books, voice over them and send the results to their parents as well as their extended family. For students with low literacy, it is just a perfect tool to help them gaining their confidence. We asked them to set some new words written and then voice over the words. They would listen to their voice then retake their voice over if they thought the result needed to be improved.
My Take
I love how the inquiry happen along using the app. I didn't see my students just sat working on the app without looking around taking pictures, interviewing people, taking notes, reading their books, visualizing their maths concept comprehension and sharing their Book Creator files to parents in or outside classroom.
