Pennsylvania Convention Center
Elementary teachers of various subjects can collaborate using Book Creator to help their students learn each subject area better. For example, the subjects of music, art, reading, and writing can be taught together using the program. Students can learn a rhyming song like Down By The Bay. They then use Book Creator to write two rhyming words. They illustrate it and then use the audio tools to record themselves singing. Finally, they publish the ebook and place the link on the student’s LMS to share with their caregivers and more.
The participants will come away with ideas and examples of elementary cross-curricular activities taught and learned using Book Creator.
