How I Use It
I have been using the Book Creator app for at least 5 years. I am always amazed by some of the books that my students create. After a brief introductory lesson on how to use the app, my students are able to work independently to write, illustrate and narrate. Last year, I started using the Chrome-based application and it is great! My school is now 1:1 and each student is able to work on their own book without worrying about having to share a device. The Chrome application is even better than the iPad app because of the online library and sharing options. It makes it so easy for students to share with their parents.
My Take
I believe that Book Creator is a great app for all age groups and every student. It has built-in adaptations that provide every student the ability to create a book. Book Creator allows students to work at the highest level of the Bloom's Taxonomy and gives them a voice to share with the world what they have learned. The simplicity of the app makes it an easy tool for teachers to implement in their classrooms. Book Creator is always at the top of my list of favorite student creation tools.
