Twitter chats – Fall / Winter term
Book Creator chats are Twitter chats with a difference: we don’t just answer questions, we make a book together.
Over the course of each hour we will collaborate on a book and publish it online. You will complete tasks or answer questions in your book in Book Creator, and at the end we’ll have a resource that we can all use and share!

Comics are incredibly fun to read and even more engaging to create, and therefore, they are an incredible tool for learning. This chat will focus on the power of comics in the classroom and how they can be utilised to develop learner-centered knowledge for any given subject!
You will be shown a few examples of how the Book Creator comic node has been used in English in order to exemplify its functionality and then you will create your own comic ‘page’ which will be combined with all other participants to create one ‘super comic’.
This will then be shared with all participants and serve as a corpus of creative ideas for a variety of different subjects.
Share your best strategies for using technology to help develop students’ literacy. We know that technology (especially Book Creator) is an excellent tool to help engage students and give them ownership of their learning, but what are specific ways we can use digital tools to help grow vocabulary, develop fluency, and improve reading and writing skills for our students?
Let’s write a book together during our chat and share our best practices whether you teach little ones or big ones, English or World Languages (or any subject), come join in the fun and come away with a boatload of good strategies and tools you can implement in your classroom!
