Book Creator and the SAMR model – Book Creator app | Blog

For the purpose of offering a reliable cadre of apps that teachers can plan around instructionally, Waukesha One offers all students and staff a set of apps called the Core Apps.

In selecting these apps, the team looked for apps that integrate well with Google Apps for Education, are flexible and not content/subject specific, promote thinking and doing aimed at the highest levels of Bloom’s, are easy to use, and can output easily for publication to the world.

Book Creator fit all of those descriptors, was stable and reliable, and set the stage for teachers and students to do many different things with it once they became comfortable with the tool.

There are many reasons to begin the journey to digital portfolios – here are just a few.
