How I Use It
I used Book Creator in my MYP7 classes for a final Art project where students had to make Comics style books reinventing the myth of Apollo and Daphne. Having to create everything in e-learning, Book Creator was used in collaborative mode. The students played the characters and portrayed themselves with Clips with the comic filter using a variety of viewpoints. Book Creator allowed the images to be retouched later by adding kinetic lines and colours to the images with drawing tools. The ability to use emoji and assisted drawing was very popular. Many of the onomatopoeia used were chosen from existing ones. A wider choice would have been appreciated. In PYP 4 instead students created comic-style "books on sustainability" during the Italian, science and technology workshop entitled "A sustainable comic book class! The activity was carried out in "Remote Learning" and the students worked either individually or and in a cooperative manner. The possibility of creating the working group that can edit the book while others can only see was very useful, everyone could take inspiration from others or give suggestions but not intervene directly if not invited. For me Book Creato is an excellent tool for both primary and secondary school, agile and versatile and immediately productive because the learning time is very fast.
My Take
In our school Book Creator is a great tool available to students and teachers because they can produce and share multimedia books. Everyone appreciates it because they find it easy, intuitive and productive. I have found that the creation of comic books is particularly attractive to students and even without special drawing skills, it allows them to recover with comic filters and play various characters. BC adapts to all levels and subjects. It also allows you to realize engaging e-learning collaborative projects in real-time with excellent educational results. Very appreciable are also its accessibility features that allow me to work with students with special educational needs.
