Book Creator App on the iPad which we have used since 2014, will be our creation tool of choice to create both videos and eBooks for "7 Minute Workouts" developed by students. We chose the app because it can be published as an interactive eBook (suitable for the iBook app), a PDF, or a movie. All of this can be sent to our Google Drive for sharing! We also wanted the ability to have words, images, drawing, and embedded video. Lastly, we wanted to try a different creation tool. Readers of iPaddiction know that Explain Everything is a go to app, because it's that good! We'll allow students to use this app to broaden their creativity toolbox.
The ePub Book that can be opened in iBooks. At this time, we are not sending books to iTunes so the iBooks are not interactive.
The PDF book that can be opened anywhere. Video examples of exercises won't work.
During the day, I team taught with Mrs. Logue and Mr. Karcz. I taught two of the classes while Mrs. Logue observed.
During the third class, Mrs. Logue taught the entire technology piece. I supported her a few times during her presentation. However, she did a great job of teaching with confidence. This was a perfect demonstration of the gradual release teaching strategy.
