My Take

I see Book Creator as a easy-to-use, engaging creation tool. As teachers, we know it is what you do with the tool that makes it great. I think this tool has practical applications for literacy development in traditional ways, as well as, helps students think critically about media and digital literacy elements .

How I Use It

We used this product with 2nd grade students who created a informational text on the topic of their choice. This app allowed students to create texts in different languages, embed supports (such as read aloud) for classmates with various literacy needs, and was highly engaging. Our students were able to add text, take photos of models they built with Legos and then embed the photos in the book to support their text.
