9. Book Creator – The Simple Way To Create Beautiful eBooks
As nominated by Beth Holland, and Michael Cohen of The Tech Rabbi.
Book Creator is a simple app for making ebooks on the iPad (and soon to be cross-platform). Red Jumper is the team behind Book Creator. Established in 2011, their mission is to empower the next generation of content creators and improve their educational outcomes.
Teachers and educators have the opportunity with Book Creator to develop interactive and evolving teaching resources that can easily be shared with or collaborated on by students. As an e-resource, it’s really easy to keep resources up to date for each year group and make edits on the fly during lessons.
Book Creator is also a great tool for students to explore their creative side and produce a tangible piece of content through their learning. Potential applications might include creating a portfolio of learning after each lesson, or a homework assignment to create an interactive story or comic book.
After creation, resources can then be shared online with anyone worldwide. Your students could support the learning of students on the other side of the world, or maybe even collaborate with them on a new project!
