How I Use It
I used it as a culminating project for students to demonstrate understanding of a math concept. It's a great tool because it meets the students where they are academically. High students can demonstrate "exceeding expectations" while lower achieving students can still demonstrate their understanding of a concept. I especially like the recording tool, I work with ELL's, so it's important to me to hear their speech.
My Take
I love this app. I will use it all the time. The students love making books using Book Creator. They especially love taking pictures and doing voice recordings. I wish their was an easier way to put images from the internet into Book Creator projects. Now, I have to upload to each individual ipad, I wish there was some way to share images among all my ipads.
