How I Use It
I have used the Book Creator App for ipad successfully with both Kindergarten and Year One Students. Students enjoy creating their own stories, and illustrating them with their own drawings. Students have chosen to either type their story and others used the pen to write the text. Students with lower language skills were able to use the talk to text options and this kept them engaged and allowed them to experience a sense of pride in completing their own story. Students have also quickly created their written stories from their work books into a digital book by taking a photo of their work, adding a picture and recording their work - my Kindy students love this option. We have also created characters on 3D Makers Empire and used this as a writing stimulus for a book in Book Creator.
My Take
I highly recommend this app, it is inclusive of the needs of all students and allows all students to experience success. I need to learn more on combining students books to create one class book.
