How I Use It
Students have worked individually and in groups on various projects- our most interesting one being a project on Easter traditions that they worked on with partner schools from France and Belgium. Students initially worked together to discuss Easter traditions in their own countries, then used the Book Creator app to present the project to parents. This was an excellent and worthwhile endeavour. This can also be used for mock newspapers or newsletters, a valuable asset in our new curriculum.
My Take
As a teacher of French and English I am constantly searching for ways to encourage students to use the vocabulary and skills acquired in class. This app has allowed me to do just that. This app can engage the most reluctant of students. Students enhance their ICT and groupwork skills on the project. The finished product at the end is useful for themselves to keep or also to show parents.
