Book Creator and the SAMR model

Read this real-life example of how Book Creator was used to move beyond Substitution to Modification on the SAMR model.

The importance of the blank canvas

In schools, the work produced by learners needs to be a reflection of their ideas, effort, creativity, imagination, focus and hard work. The best apps are not prescriptive, but allow freedom.

Making the case to upgrade

Teacher David Dulberger shares his research and insight from the position paper he presented to his school, to convince them to upgrade from the free to the full version of Book Creator.

Vicki Davis

Book Creator is one of the most powerful tools I’ve seen to help turn reading and writing into a fun, collaborative project, that even kids who struggle will just love doing.

Kristi Meeuwse

My students wanted to know if they could show another class how to create their own books. What a great way for all of my students to have an opportunity to be a leader.
