Now that I have your attention…

This is a supplement to “Appy Hours 4 You” Blog Talk Radio Show: Episode 20: “Exceptional E-book Creators“. In this episode we featured nine FREE apps that could be utilized to create an E-book on the iPad. We discussed the features of each app as well as how it could be integrated into the classroom in multiple content areas and grade levels.

  2. StoryKit: (International Children’s Library)

  1. Grade Level and Content area taught: K-12 Technology

    Details and info about how you can, have, or will use app(s) to create an E-Book project with your class.
    Looking to create resources to use with EC students that need a little extra boost in the classroom. I’m going to be working on ‘books’ for 2nd and 3rd graders in my first go-round. If those are successful, I will branch out to other grade-levels.

  2. This ia awesome! We are just finishing up a 5th grade Health Science Project on using movement breaks as self-regulation strategies. We wanted to use the iPads for the wrap up project, a “how to” book for first graders, but hadn’t found an app that allowed us to integrate video clips versus just photos into our books. This sounds perfect! And I’m already thinking about the possibilities for creating social stories with video modeling for some of our students with ASDs :)

  3. Terrific ideas! I just had an opportunity to use ScrapPad – WOW! There’s so many free ones. Super cool to create a professional looking graphic with my text. I used the picture and dropped it into iMovie for a slick beginning. Thanks so much for sharing.
