The FamilyBookform technology combines:

  • Writing

  • Templates

  • Publishing

  • Communication

  • Funding, Revenue & Marketing

With Universal Design Learning frameworks for the ‘How, What, Why’.

How

Writing: A dynamic page to personalize & differentiate - speak, type & collaborate to input & collect content onto the page.

What

Templates: Template pages & question prompts guide the content to input.

Why

Publishing: All content is automatically formatted into published digital books, PDF & audio.

Communication: The process scaffolds ‘Communication for Connection’ interviews with family & community, strengthening relationships, Emotional Intelligence & wellbeing.

Funding, Revenue & Marketing: Projects are funded by business, books can be sold to communities and mainstream media & marketing is generated.

Example projects:

Biography / Community engagement

5 min TV during project: Students interview family & community to save emotional oral histories, culture, art and information.

Qualitative Research

Covid-19 & Me: Students collect family & community information and experiences as primary source historical records.

Fundraiser

Favorite Recipes Book: Teachers collect student’s poems, reflections, or favourite recipes to create collaborative class books of value or students create their own and gift/sell to their community.

Students become published authors while developing 21st century skills, the 4Cs of Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration & Creativity, plus Social Emotional Intelligence. 

Projects create original, authentic books to showcase local content of importance and generate mainstream media, community engagement & marketing content.
