Power of the iPad

I am always asked why the ipad? Why do you like using the ipad in the classroom? My response is easy WHY NOT? You have a device that can take pictures, use several different applications to bring together into one project and it is user friendly. One of the my favorite apps to use as the house that holds everything is BOOK CREATOR. This tool continues to get better every year and now they will be releasing over the summer the ability to use this app with Chrome.

Here are some ways to use Book Creator in your Classroom:
