How I Use It
As an instructional coach, I support teachers who are using Book Creator as a creation tool. Teachers who have diverse learners find that the apps ability to record voice notes, and use pictures support a wide variety of learners. As well, French teachers are finding a huge benefit in using the app to model language in small books and then having the students model the language back in their own book.
My Take
Book creator is a simple,yet effective tool that engages all learners. My only critique is that the fonts and background choices seem a bit "young" for older students, Gr 9 and up. I have taught students how to use an image as their background to make it a more advanced design.
