My Take

This is a fabulous tool for students to add their voice to a project. There are tons of ways to be creative and a gazillion possible topics for a book. It's easy to publish the book online and share it privately with parents or other stakeholders. I am certain that this would be an improved option for student digital portfolios.

How I Use It

I have used the iPad version for many years. Two years ago, one of our 7th-grade social studies teacher and I created a book to share with 5th graders using the iPads. Now that there is a chrome version, however, I see Bookcreator as a game changer. As of this year, our middle school is now 1:1 Chromebooks. With the chrome version of Bookcreator, we can now have students create books directly on their device. It's very easy for a teacher to set up a library and share the code with students. The built-in audio feature makes recording student voice a breeze. The new embed option allows more creativity for students as they can add many items to their books. This could work as an awesome digital portfolio option for students.
