How many different ways could you approach the same task? In this new ebook, I share twelve examples of how to tackle one task - analyse the character of Bilbo Baggins.
First though a little backstory. This project was originally put together in conjunction with Craig Kemp (http://mrkempnz.com) who is a New Zealand native. This was enough for the Lord of The Rings fan in me to pitch a Middle Earth themed project and we brainstormed dozens of ideas for how to tackle the task in different ways. Unfortunately Craig had to pull out of the project due to other commitments but I was so inspired by the idea that I decided to continue solo and see it through to completion.
And I'm glad that I did! The ebook was creared using Book Creator and includes 12 distinct app-based approaches to the task. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out and it's a nice follow up to our Breakfast Club themed feature that also looked at ways that different students might approach the same task.
The apps included are:
-Puppet Pals 2
-RWT Trading Card
-RWT Venn Diagram
-Shadow Puppet Edu
-Write About This
Each page includes a short description and a practical example of how the app could be used. Naturally the concept could easily be repurposed to match a wide range of subject matters. Also, as Book Creator allows for the merging of multiple books, you could have a class complete the task in their chosen way and then composite the work as a class ebook in Book Creator!
I have three ways for you to access the ebook. Below you will find links to both epub and PDF versions from Dropbox. Click on the images to access to files. Please note that the epub version is a much larger file but it does include the video content. Beneath those is something a little different - Book Creator now includes a video export feature which I have used to embed the content at the bottom of this post. The video content within the original book will play automatically as a part of this.
