I'm sharing about an app that I am guilty of trying to avoid for a while and eventually ended up using. Now, it has proved to be one of the most helpful apps in my classroom. It is one of those apps that you need to have in front of you in order to understand how to use it, but I decided to post about it because many of my students have been choosing to use it for their projects and have asked their parents to get it on their family iPad at home for the summer. That's when it really hit me - Not only does this app have many capabilities and purposes, but the students are also really proud of what they create using it.
CBB is perfect for making informational books. CBB is a book-making tool that has different formats. Your students can choose the option that is organized by chapter. Then, they name their chapter, type the text, and can add almost any form of media they choose - images, videos, audio files, links, projects created in other apps, and just about anything else you can image. When the student is finished with the book, they click "generate book" and then "preview". The preview feature allows them to open their book in other apps. We always choose open in "ibooks" so then they have a published ibook. This is what they share with the class or their families.
I feel like I have just gotten started with this app this year, but I couldn't live without it because I know it is always there to pull everything together for projects, portfolios, or other purposes.
