Creating sign language books in Book Creator - Book Creator app | Blog - 2 views

    "The inspiration - History ebook
    Back in April 2014 I worked with Hill Country Middle School in Austin on a collaborative ebook between 8th grade and 3rd grade students.

    8th grade students composed books using Book Creator and Scrap Pad based on historical topics covered in the year. The books took on a familiar repetitive children's storybook theme to make the concepts easier to digest and comprehend for their 3rd grade audience.

    Once the framework of the book was set, 8th grade students used a Google Doc to provide 3rd grade students with a list of images they would need to complete the book. On the day of the field trip, the whole project really came together.

    The History ebook project became the inspiration for another collaboration."

Writing up a science experiment with Book Creator - Book Creator app | Blog - 2 views

  •  
    "Originally, we used Book Creator in English lessons, where children enjoyed producing more creative and interactive pieces, using the various tools, such as images for scenes in their stories or to link with the subject of their non-fiction work.

    It also helped our younger years' classes, both with writing and speaking and listening because the children were able to record their sentences, using the microphone tool.

    Moreover, we have a significant number of children who speak English as an additional language, so Book Creator provides excellent support for them too because they are able to practice both their written and speaking skills simultaneously.

    Book Creator can really work in the science classroom, according to @MrW_BVPS

    The hypothesis
    Realising the potential of Book Creator, I wanted to see how effective it would be in other subject areas. In this instance, we used it in Science. The children were investigating the importance of surface area when thinking about floating and sinking. I felt this would be a good fit because it would help to immerse the children in the experiment."

Book Creator and the SAMR model - Book Creator app | Blog - 0 views

  •  
    "For the purpose of offering a reliable cadre of apps that teachers can plan around instructionally, Waukesha One offers all students and staff a set of apps called the Core Apps.

    In selecting these apps, the team looked for apps that integrate well with Google Apps for Education, are flexible and not content/subject specific, promote thinking and doing aimed at the highest levels of Bloom's, are easy to use, and can output easily for publication to the world.

    Book Creator fit all of those descriptors, was stable and reliable, and set the stage for teachers and students to do many different things with it once they became comfortable with the tool."

How to dictate a book in Book Creator - Book Creator app | Blog - 1 views

    "When working with young students, typing can be quite a difficult thing for them to do.

    In Book Creator, you can easily make a voice recording of the child telling the story but often having the written text there can make that story even more powerful.

    Just recently, I was training some assistant teachers on how to use Book Creator. I run a lot of workshops, and Book Creator is one of my most used apps on my iPad.

    I love it when I learn something new. So I just had to share this with you."

    "There are several ways to use technology to engage students and enhance their literacy skills and one of them is through creating video book trailers. Yes, they are similar to movie trailers we see now on YouTube but they are different in scope. A video book trailer is a concise review of a book created with the help of a variety of digital tools that include : images, text, clips, voiceovers, recordings, and music."

Using Book Creator to author mathematics - Book Creator app | Blog - 3 views

  •  
    "My students have noticed that I often say "You'll never see that in a math book".

    Some of the topics we explore take a twist and some of the methods I use to teach are a little unorthodox (but they help). Students affectionately call this a "Yencafied" lesson strategy, and often add a hashtag (#yencafy) in their notes!

    Come the end of this school year, I mentioned to my classes that I'd been thinking about this "never-see-that-in-a-math-book" theme, and I decided perhaps some of these strategies should show up in math books… and that these books should be authored by them. They loved the idea!"

Book Creator + student designed curriculum = iTunes U - Book Creator app | Blog - 0 views

    "I think Book Creator is now one of my favourite creation apps!  Several of my Health Without Borders project groups are using Book Creator to develop their final product to teach elementary kids health concepts.

    They were pretty excited to get to use the new drawing option, as many found it difficult to find free for re-use images in Creative Commons or Wikimedia Commons  that were appropriate for their topic and target age group.

    They found the app very easy to work with and really had no questions for me at all.  They loved that they could AirDrop the book between group members so different people could contribute easily.  The voiceover option is also simple to use and works well with just the microphone on the iPad.  I was so impressed with their final product!"
