Overview

Booktrack Classroom allows K12 and higher education students to add sounds into books. Students can create their own books or read others’ books found on Booktrack’s marketplace. According to the company's website, contextual soundtracks can help students better comprehend text and increase engagement. Individual book prices vary, but most books are under $10.

APPROACH

After logging into Booktrack Classroom, teachers create a class and add students to their roster.

Students have the choice of reading existing books from publishers on Booktrack’s marketplace, or creating their own books.

To create their own, first they insert text and then sounds, which include Music (e.g. Adventure or Horror), Ambience (e.g. sounds of the street or rivers) and Effects (e.g. sounds of gun shots or footsteps). Students highlight the part of text they want to insert the sound into, choose from different categories and listen to samples of those soundtracks. Once they have chosen all sounds needed, they can publish their book for others to read.

IMPLEMENTATION

Booktrack Classroom is available on the modern browser, as well as on native iPhone, iPad and Android-based smartphone and pad apps.

PRICING

Individual book prices vary, depending on the author. The price of each book is either free or usually under $10.

WHO IS USING IT

As of May 2015, more than 25,000 students and 5,000 teachers in more than 1,000 schools use Booktrack Classroom.
