How I Use It
I use Book Creator with my third grade students as they create and publish a narrative writing piece, expository writing piece, and opinion writing piece. I print students' books for them as an end-of-year gift. I make class compilations with featured sections from each student's book.
My Take
I love Book Creator! It's fantastic because it raises the bar for excellent content creation while at the same time providing a number of scaffolds so that all students, including students with learning differences and home languages other than English, to be successful. We’ve used a number of accessibility features, and our favorites are voice-to-text in multiple languages (120! great quality!), Auto Draw (our students don't have touch screens, and drawing with the track pad can get so frustrating), and template books with sentence starters (especially the remixable books).
