Student Created iBooks!

Written By marsono on Friday, December 14, 2012 | 12:32 PM

As we've been exploring how to use iBooks Author for teachers to created differentiated digital content, we've begun to wonder how this could be used as a student creation tool. We have many classrooms with 1:1 iPads, but each room only has one MacBook or iMac (the only devices that run iBooks Author). However, we've started to experiment with aggregating student digital creations from their iPads and using iBooks Author to put them together.

This video is an example from a 4th grade classroom with whom I work. They are learning about elements of extended response (I know - not the most exciting topic. Hoping to move towards more exciting content next time!) and as such are practicing different aspects of responding to questions. In this segment, they are thinking about text evidence.

The students began by reading a short text. Then they responded to a prompt by finding evidence from the text (using Edmodo). Then they filmed each other's metacognition - that is, they filmed a partner talking about their own thinking when answering the question. Finally, student volunteers stayed after class to put the iBook together. Our hope is to replicate this process with more student-driven topics (i.e., a CBL or PBL unit) and make the iBooks Author jobs embedded into school-time.

Have you been using iBooks Author with students? If so, please share your stories below!
