How I Use It
Book Creator is a one stop shop when it comes to creation apps! The best part about it is that it is literally a blank canvas for students to use their imaginations and show what they know! It is also great because teachers can create and share templates for students to follow along or have some guidance in their thinking. Book Creator lends itself to any content! I have had great success creating number and alphabet books in kindergarten all the way to fifth grade students sharing their Genius Hour projects!
My Take
I like that the app itself is simple. There are not a lot of bells and whistles that jump out off the page and distract students. Of course you can dive deeper and find additional color choices, page backgrounds, and fonts but these things are not the focus of the app. This apps serves teachers because it allows students to be in control of showing what they know. Students can draw within the app, take a photo of a drawing, or even pull an image off the web into Book Creator! The possibilities are endless.
