Simple and easy way to create an e-book. I would love to get some feedback from someone who created a book with Book Creator.

This would be a great tool for someone who's looking to put their content into an e-book. It's a simple and easy way to create and share on.
Ralph Springett's curator insight, April 22, 2013 3:59 PM

Goodproduct, but if we are going to ask faculty to turn their study guides into ebooks they will need time and often they will need support to get the full benefit of the multimedia available.

5 Critical, Non-Obvious Advantages of iBooks for Desktop (with Examples of How Your Book Can Benefit From Them) | Appy Hour with Apps to Rock Your EdTech World | Scoop.it

Apple is bringing the iBooks application to the desktop – Hooray! 

For the last 3 years, the iBooks application was limited to iOS devices, meaning you could only read iBooks on your iPad or iPhone. But with the release of OS X Mavericks, you (and your audience) can now read books from the comfort of your desktop or laptop computer.  

Want to learn more about how to capitalize on the move? 

We thought so  And we’ve got some helpful ideas for you to get the most out of the update!

This is awesome.  So much theory of teaching collides with the practice.  This could be a great way for teachers in the trenches share their experience and get genuine change in education happening.

Denise Weinhoeft-Renfro's comment, July 5, 2013 3:17 PM
This is truly a great tool in my estimation, but theory and reality also collide with technology. If you are not 1:1 then the potential of the app is not getting used in the best way that it can.
Peter Pappas's comment, July 5, 2013 3:22 PM
Good point Denise. I'm hoping it's something school will grow into over time.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 27, 2013 2:51 PM

Mr. Borman surveyed 17 students in one of his classes and discovered that there were a few needs when it came to reading comprehension. He has put together "A Toolbox of Reading Comprehension Apps" that can support the needs of his students in his UDL classroom.  For each app, he has outlined "What it does", "How students can use it" and the "UDL Principles".

 

Check out the Toolbox:

> iBooks

> Popplet

> SyncSpace

> Odyssey (by Homer)

> Toontastic

> Explain Everything

> Ulysses

> Subtext

> Prezi

 

Thank you Mr. Borman!

Jane Strunck's curator insight, April 29, 2013 11:11 AM

Mr. Borman used Edmodo to survey his student's learning preferences and based on the results, identified apps that would support reading comprehension and promote UDL in his classroom.  Would love to know how students responded to the options.  Nice process, Mr. Borman!
