Week of January 12 - January 16
Tip of the Week- Google Cheat Sheets!
Tool of the Week- Booktrack
Here's the great thing though, they also have Booktrack Classroom where teachers can create classes for students.
· Teachers can control which books their students have access to (grade / age appropriate, etc.)
· Students can also “create” their own books with their own writing and add sounds to it!
o They add music based on Emotion, Genre, or Style (so it really gets them thinking about what they’ve written.)
o You can add sounds for very specific sections of text, or a whole chapter. Very cool!
o They can’t add pictures. Its text only.
o Students can read & rate each other’s books in their Class!
Below is a video overview about the tool. Let me know if you would like to give it a try and I will help!
