What is Book Creator?

Book Creator is an iPad app and a Chrome app for MacBooks that allows students to create an eBook they can share with a public audience. Students can create pages with text, images, drawings, video, and audio. There are also comic book-style templates that you can use to create amazing looking projects. Additionally, a teacher can create a book creator project and give it to their students as template that they can edit. All projects can be saved and exported as ePub, PDF, or videos and turned into Canvas or Seesaw. 

Why is this a great tool?

With Book Creator, teachers can use it to create books or templates for their students. Students love this tool because it's easy to learn and they can add creative media such as images and videos. Students will be able to practice written and oral communication and create amazing stories and/or demonstrations of their learning.
