We appreciate this guest post from Book Creator. We think it is a great app and deserves consideration in any technology toolbox. We are beginning to explore templates for Book Creator and invite you to check out the product listed at the end of the post.
You may already be convinced about the potential for using educational ebooks in your classroom. But have you thought about actually creating the textbooks yourself?
Book Creator is a super-simple app for combining text, images, audio and video into an ebook that can be shared across the classroom and beyond.
Create meaningful ebooks that your class can relate to
For teachers, this means you can tailor your ebooks to the level of the class, or even to each student. This is what Math teacher Cathy Yenca did with her 7th grade students.
Teachers could create templates for their students covering any topic – vocabulary notebooks, informational research, music books – you name it. Book Creator books are easy to create, and simple to share – you can export the books as ePub, PDF or video. Use a cloud app like Google Drive or Dropbox and you have the power to create a classroom resource library that everyone can access with ease.
Turn your students into published authors
Students often have a greater level of motivation when they know they are producing work for an audience beyond their classroom. Book Creator is so simple to use that the app gets out of the way and allows for creativity to take precedence!
Here’s some ideas to try with your students:
- Interactive story books
- Social skills books for special needs students
- Comic books
- Collaborative poetry
And when you’re done, why not publish the book to Apple’s iBooks Store and turn your students into published authors?
