If you are concerned with students creating an account, you can create ONLY ONE account (using your email address and a password that you create for your school MixBook account), students can all log in to that account. All student projects will now be under your control and supervision.
Here are a few additional ways to use MixBook in the classroom:
- An illustrated guide to how to do something (like how to do a certain sport or exercise, or any procedure relevant to lessons taught).
- Retelling historical event
- Write an alternate ending to a novel or story.
- A day-in-the-life of someone in a career of interest.
- A short story, illustrated with photos.
- An autobiography, featuring scanned photos of age progression.
- A book about rainforests (or prairies, or trees, or musical instruments, or continents, or mathematicians, or rocks and minerals, or how an oil refinery works, or other curriculum based concepts).
- A yearbook for the class or whole school, using photos taken throughout the year.
- A book about a dream vacation, including a realistic budget of expenses, photos of places and monuments, etc.
- A field guide to the birds in the area (or mammals, or cites and towns, etc.).
- A tribute to parents or guardians, or grandparents, or brothers and sisters.
- A book of famous quotes to live by (with photos of the people quoted, or photos acting out the consequences of the advice.
The digital book is always online and can be shared with others for viewing. @Susan Gauthier, now that you know more about MixBook, click on the link located in the Create section above and add to the Mother's Day Book. Yes Susan, I have tagged you!
It is wonderful to have a master teacher account to deal with those schools that don't have emails. Another great thing about Mixbook is you can get a real book published!
I have used this in PD courses and the people that use it love it! Thanks for bringing it up.
Happy Mother's Day to all...
