Bullet journal, meet the classroom. It's high time for an education reboot.

Envision this: students process and become highly accountable (hello engagement) for their learning while they each write their own books. What, concurrent, individualized, creative and engaged remote learning? YES! Technology and good old fashioned drawing, writing, and book- making bring creativity to life in a blended online and individualized classroom experience that embraces the challenges of engaging kids during Covid-19. 

Combine creative thinking skills with school subjects to record, design and write a book all at once. Activate new creative heights for students as they each write a storybook to capture content areas all while individuals apply their own imagination for their story.  Learn how creative book writing can work for you.
