The middle school students have been working on a “Book Shelfie” about a book they love. They are creating a book chapter in iBooks Author and adding in multimedia pieces that they create either on an iPad or on a Mac Computer. Look for the multitouch book to be published soon to iTunes!
Here are a few examples of media they created to illustrate their books;
Above is Lacey’s Book Trailer for Eddie Red. She used the Pickayou app to make the characters, animated them in Puppet Pals, and then pulled the clips into iMove to make the trailer!
Ethan used the SpokenPhoto app to make this amazing talking video of Fire Star who is one of the cats in the Warrior book.
Bobby used Tellagami Edu to make a character animation of Sadie, one of the characters in the book Throne of Fire.
Giovanni used the Texting Story app to illustrate a scene from the book Maze Runner.
Brooke also used the trailer feature in iMovie to illustrate the book The Skin I’m In. She used live video clips. She also included a video collage into her trailer using the Pic Play Post app.
Carter created this creative talking Wanted Poster using the Wanted Poster app and Facejack!
Quentin really made the basketball theme come to life by using a variety of images and clip art in his video.
Here is Antonio’s book trailer for The Longest Ride. Did you notice how he drew a hat on one of his characters using the Sketchbook X app? That was a great creative touch!
Matt also used a combination of Pickayou, Puppet Pals, and iMovie to make his trailer.
