Using bookr is easy and fun. One of the most important outcomes of this exercise is introducing the Creative Commons label to the students.
First students read teacher´s instruction. They choose images from the database that are not protected by © copyright. Under each image, they write short captions.
They can add pages to their album as they like. Also, it is possible to edit pictures in a simple way. In the end, students publish their album and send the link (for example) to the teacher´s email.
