How I Use It
Away from the basics of recording information and thoughts in colourful and unique ways, book creator can be much more than that. It has been a bridge of communication for some special children in our school, a student who has spent a lot of time in hospital and has been unable to start school with his peers, has used book creator to introduce himself and his wheelchair to his new class, recording his voice and including video. The class have in turn been able to create a book for the student to introduce the class and the surroundings. They have also been able to work together on collaborative books, enabling them to share class learning.
My Take
Book Creator in an integral part of teaching and learning. It enables students to complete work in a unique, student led way that enables the potential of individualised learning. I particularly like the accessibility of the app, regardless of age and ability, students are always able to create and succeed regardless of their level.
