Creating Class E-Books

This post is inspired by a video presentation given by Ian Addison at last nights TeachMeet Bedford. In the video he demonstrate an excellent e-book created by Colin Hill (@Colport) and his class.

To create the e-book they used the website myebook.com. You can view their ebook here. Student work was scanned and uploaded to the website which then creates the on-screen version of the book. You can even embed audio.

As Ian says in the video this means you can still produce great looking ebooks from what might initially be a non-ICT task – pupils could draw and handwrite stories which then form part of the book. You could also then add typed work or digital photos to produce a finished product.

It’s a great way for collating and sharing pupil work with parents – create an end-of-term (or year) book to summarise the work done or create a special book for a class project.

Thanks again to Colin and Ian for sharing the idea!
