How I Use It
Book creators allows students the opportunity to show their learning in various formats. I have used Book Creator in Social Studies for tradition books as well as in conjunction with our district's adopted writing curriculum: Lucy Calkins. Students have made journals to showcase sequence and events, as well as made comic books for figurative language. Allowing students time to explore the app worked very well and allowed students to stay on task once started, as opposed to wandering off.
My Take
I love Book Creator! It is one of my go to apps due to it's versatility and the many different avenues students can go on when using it. I use book creator across the curriculum and across grade levels (grades 1-5) when I push in for weekly technology integration lessons. Book creators allows students the opportunity to show their learning in various formats. From science reports to family tradition books to journaling adventures of the school elf, students enjoy showing what they know in a digital format. Book Creator allows students to be creative and explain their learning of content in terms that they can best explain it in. Book Creator allows my quietest students a chance to be heard.
