This week the tool I chose to explore was Book Creator. It is a free web program and app that allows people to create books with their own photos, media and content. I found the program itself a little confusing. To change the look of the page, you had to select the . Intuitively, I thought that this would be information, like a tutorial. I did not discover that it opened up the page tools until the end.
Once I played around, I found it really straight forward to use! I created a short book describing what I learned during out last DnD session with Harvey DMed! You can read my little book by clicking on the cover below!
As an educator, I think that this will be an amazing tool for both teachers and students alike! It is easy to use, accessible and free! Educators can build books with content and share information with their students. These books can incorporate visual media such as videos to aid in students learning. Students also can build books to share what they have learned through building books and sharing them with their peers! This book took me approximately an hour to complete, which included the time it took me to learn the program.
Overall, I think this program is going to be an amazing tool to utilize in the classroom!
