1.1. There are several ways to incorporate collaboration into this tool.

7.4.1.1. I think it's great you mentioned this! Even if we were talking about Bloom's good old taxonomy of critical thought, forgetting the digital part for a second, there are so many high-level thinking skills involved in this! Getting our students to create is really one of our biggest goals. They have to know, comprehend, analyze, take apart and put back together to create something new! Creating books and publishing does all of that. It uses the imagination. But now students are also becoming tech-savvy and literate as well. -C Natter

7.4.1.1.1. Thanks for sharing! I actually found this site several years ago when look for a new book for my children on my nook. I've been showing it to my daughter this week as I've been working on this and she asked if she can write a book to give to everyone for Christmas! -K.Peloquin
