A Few Activities for World Book Day using iPad

A Few Activities for World Book Day using iPad | eLearning | Scoop.it

As World Book Day 2015 fast approaches, here are a few activities to try.

 

Firstly you can use an app such as Croak It https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/croak.it!/id525958948?mt=8 so pupils can record a 30 second book review into the iPad. This creates a web link (you can make these private) which could be added into a QR Code generator https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/qr-code-maker/id513617634?mt=8 . Print off the QR Codes so pupils can add them to the book covers. This make a nice ongoing activity for pupils to add audio reviews to school library books.

 

The second activity involves Do Ink Green Screen app https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/green-screen-by-do-ink/id730091131?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4 . Students can take a photo of themselves against a green or blue background (green screen or backing paper) and using the app, add themselves into an image of a book front cover by combining the two images together in Do Ink.

Have fun!

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | eLearning | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't not want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | eLearning | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.
