How I Use It
My Theatre students are using Bookcreator to create storyboards for an infomercial. Since we were just getting started, I wanted this to be a "rough" outline that included their script and simple visuals for the storyboard to use when filming. These storyboards turned out much nicer - almost print-ready ads. Students quickly learned how to add different features including text, images, audio and video recording. They want to do this in other classes.
My Take
There are so many versatile uses of Bookcreator to make student learning visible in journaling, product creation, demonstrations, how-to books of processes, collaborative books for pairs, small groups, and whole class. ELL and Special Ed students (and any students really) can improve language practice using Bookcreator. I really like the full host of features available for students to create. There is very little that I can see as a downside or raising the difficulty level beyond "ready for beginners to get started."
