Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | Utilising technology in teaching and implementing Australian Curriculum | 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.

I really enjoyed this article on "do's" and "don'ts" for empowering students in digital literacy techniques.  I think we forget - this is where our students shine. The article points out that today's undergraduates have NEVER known life without the internet.  How do we use that to help our students learn more?

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 8, 2015 8:37 PM

Digital Literacy is becoming more important in learning. The curriculum today requires teachers to use digital tools. Please read this interesting take on digital literacies.

A visual guide to critical thinking. Can print for classroom display

Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 2014 8:24 AM

Hello, Year 9! 

Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy. 

As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.
