How I Use It
I use Book Creator for each of the modules I teach. I create a template with key questions and tasks included. I airdrop the template to the children’s iPads. The children complete the tasks through research and collaboration with their peers. By the end of the module, they have covered all required content themselves. I end the module with. a quiz embedded into the book (usually Google Forms). The children upload their completed books to Google Classroom.
My Take
We adore Book Creator at our school, especially now we can embed links. An awesome addtion would be able to edit images once they have been inserted into the book. Being able to crop an image would be fantastic! A wider range of shaped would be super too.
