It’s back! This year I’ve added ten webinars to my Events Calendar and they are totally free. Just like last year, I’ve partnered with Book Creator to offer ten live webinars sharing ways to use this dynamic creation tool in the classroom. From a spotlight of new features to collaboration in the classroom, we’ve got you covered!
Below you’ll find all of the links to register for each webinar. After the live event, you’ll find the recordings for each webinar on Book Creator’s YouTube channel. If you subscribe to their YouTube channel (use this link), then YouTube should send you a notification when Book Creator uploads any new videos — including these webinar recordings.
Webinars for Teachers
Each webinar is 45 minutes long and will include moments where I’ll ask you to try something out in Book Creator. I love events like these that are interactive, so you can get a feel for what Book Creator can do in your classroom right away. Each webinar requires separate registration, and space is limited. If you know you won’t be able to attend the live event you can check back on this page all summer. I will update the page with the recording link as soon as it is up on YouTube.
One more thing before you jump into the list of webinars… can you tell a friend? After you register, share the link to this blog post with a colleague who might want to learn about Book Creator too. You can post about it on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or even send them a link in an email. If you do post on social media, make sure to tag @ClassTechTips and @BookCreatorApp too!
