How I Use It
Instead of creating paper interactive notebooks, my students create their notebooks within Book Creator. They have ownership in the book, add what needs to be there and then there is an instant connection.
My Take
I love using Book Creator in my classroom. I wish the iPad app was as robust as the web version but I'm sure that will come down the road. I use Book Creator with my iPad technology class as a way to organize their projects but I also use it in my classroom where I teach students with special needs. My students who are on the lowest end of the spectrum were able to make books showing that they understand personal hygiene.
