Assignment 7: Creation and Editing Tools –Create Booklet

I have spent significant time online attempting to find the perfect (inexpensive) booklet-making application. I’ve experimented with various book creators such as SnapfishSmashwords, and Storybird. The best thing I’ve found so far is a downloadable app called Create Booklet through TheKeptPromise.

The way it works is that one can simply choose Create Booklet as part of the PDF option during printing. Unfortunately it does not make an amazing online version with beautiful imagery nor is it interactive like Storybird. However, it can help students create a booklet by the end of class. The downside is it will have to be worked on as a regular word document and it does not have the collaboration opportunity as some of the online application versions I’ve been exploring.

However, since I wanted the students to be able to print a booklet at the end of class, this is the way to go. Each topic the students pick out of the hat can be worked on individually. Everyone gets to utilize just one page and they can add an image as well.

Font and size will be stipulated in the directions of the project to make the booklet consistent and flowing.

I will hand out the assignment as A BOOKLET as a way for the students to get an idea of what the final project will look like.

Creation and Editing Tools: Book Creators -Storybird

Storybird is an application where one can make specific storybooks. The exciting thing about Storybird is that a teacher can invite the whole class as collaborators.

In my lesson plan about Diabetes, I can generate multiple topics to be covered. Each student will pick a topic by drawing it out of a hat (literally!)

I made an assignment within the application to be shared with my students, asking them to make their very own Diabetes Awareness Book/Booklet to be handed out at school during the month of November (Diabetes Awareness Month).

However, the downside with Storybird, is that one cannot upload any images. This means the students have to choose from Storybird’s library of very artful images, though not much focus on diabetes or health.

I found this to be a deal breaker as I do not quite see how I can utilize this tool connects to the content.  I am choosing a different way for my students to publish their Diabetes Awareness booklet.
