Book Creator is a free, open-ended digital creation tool that allows students and teachers to create and publish digital books. This user-friendly and intuitive tool lets you make interactive pages with voice, text, video, images, maps, and more. Students of all ages will find this tool easy to use whether with a browser, iPad or tablet. Teachers can create libraries for students, and students can work collaboratively. This versatile platform can be used to create books, comics, reports, portfolios, journals, step-by-step guides - your imagination is the only limit. Teachers can be creators of their own original content to share with the world. We will also discuss connections to curriculum goals and school initiatives. Premium features of Book Creator will also be highlighted.
Those who pre-register will receive access to a digital book to work on collaboratively during the session. For those interested, a short breakout session will be held to explain how you can grow your professional learning network by becoming a Book Creator Certified Author.
