How I Use It
I train teachers to use technology in their classrooms and I often model using Book Creator to show just how versatile this app is in the classroom. I share examples of how it can be used, but often have them create a page in my library and then I merge them into one book so they can see everyone else's work. They are always amazed at how easy it is to use and that it is not just an elementary tool.
My Take
I have been a fan of Book Creator since it came out for the iPad and was very excited to find out that it was available for Google Chrome. Many of the teachers I work with do not have the budget to buy the app, but they are still able to do so much with the free version in their classrooms. I love that you can now import things that you have created in Google Maps, Docs, YouTube and more to add to the versatility of this tool. Just when you tell everyone how great this tool is, it gets even better!
