How I Use It
A great app to use in the classroom for all age ranges and pupil abilities. The possibilities for this app are endless. Pupils are able to create a book including text, images, video, sounds and music to bring their learning to life. The interactive capabilities of the app engage all pupils. Providing a clear success criteria allows all pupils to produce purposeful and meaningful end products. Books creator can be used at the beginning of a project/topic as a research based task or as final piece of work to celebrate all previous learning. The ability to 'app smash' allows pupils draw upon previous work completed and create a leaning portfolio for different topics. Pupils enjoyed using book creator to bring their favourite books to life. They also wrote their own books to a selected audience (foundation phase.)
My Take
Great teaching and learning tool. Love the user friendly interface and how easy it is to bring in work created in other apps. This can be used by the teacher to create work prior to lessons or can be used by pupils to further enhance their learning.
