Publishing Student Writing with Book Creator (Free Version)

Book Creator is powerful tool for your students to share and publish their writing inside the classroom….and possibly beyond. Book Creator is a website that allows both teachers and students to write and create their own online book. These interactive books can contain many different elements including - photos, videos, drawing, sound recordings, and even embedded html widgets Once these books are finished, teachers can publish to the web. Now anyone with access to an internet connected device can read student-published books! And if students want a paper copy of their book, it can be printed as well. In this workshop, teachers will learn how to create several different types of online, interactive books using Book Creator.

Feels Like a Game! (in-person)

What if school were your students' favorite game? In a gamified environment, students feel the freedom to fail (and learn from it!), safe to explore, encouraged to collaborate (multiplayer), & are deeply engaged. Gaming isn't just for nerds in basements! Join us to see how games can teach us a thing or two about intrinsic motivation, higher order thinking, feedback and SO much more. You will walk away with a simple method for making your instruction feel more like a game.
