Book Creator Poetry Books

UPDATE 6/20/13 - The Poetry Anthology is now available on the iTunes Bookstore!  Here is the link:


This book is a multimedia anthology of poetry created by sixth grade students, illustrated with a variety of apps, and compiled using the Book Creator app.

The poetry was written in Mrs. Hockenbrocht's Language Arts class.  Students were asked to illustrate their poetry using images, text, and audio.  They were to use and cite copyright friendly images and needed to include at least one video.
They needed to use a variety of apps to create the media for this project. When done with their chapter, I uploaded each book from Book Creator to Dropbox. I then downloaded each book onto one device and used the merge feature in Book Creator to combine each chapter into one anthology.

This is one of the best iPad projects we have done! Even though it was the last weeks of school, students were totally engaged and so creative!  If you are an edtech person and are looking for a great example of how students can combine multiple apps on an iPad to create multimedia content, I hope you will consider downloading and sharing our book!

Here is a list of some of the apps they used:
