Book Creator webinars

We all know that if you hand an iPad to students, they’ll have it figured out in minutes, right?!
But for teachers, you may want some assistance (or some inspiration).

We’re here to help.

Summer 2017 webinar series

This series is designed for teachers who want to energize their use of Book Creator. These webinars are 45 minutes in length and include an opportunity for questions.

You will be creating books along the way so you’ll need to have the app open and ready. Teachers will receive a certificate of completion after every webinar.

This webinar series has now ended. You can view the archive below – and look out for more webinars next summer!
