Cyndi Danner-Kuhn's curator insight, January 19, 2013 12:23 PM

Below is a list of some excellent books for your iPad. I have curated this list over  the last couple of months and I kept adding to it every time I stumble upon a resource somewhere online.I don't know if you like reading books on your iPad or not but let me tell you this: having at least a couple of titles installed on your iPad would really be of great help particularly in those moments when you are stuck somewhere and have nothing to do but waiting. Reading is a habit ( luckily a good one ) that we can ACQUIRE  by force of habituation at least in the eyes of Skinnerian theory.The more you read , the fluent you get at reading and the more used your mind becomes to the act of reading.

Check out these books I selected for you. All of them are free and require iBooks. Enjoy

Brilliant - "free books"

LundTechIntegration's curator insight, January 21, 2013 11:18 AM

Great books to help you implement iPads in the classroom, and they are free downloads.

“@jjvandyk: transformation of school libraries to a learning commons environment http://t.co/nQEwj9yT @MyBCLibrary” #UU_LIM

 

"...school libraries are transforming to stay relevant in this global information economy and support the growing and changing needs of the learners. In addition to traditional roles of information literacy and providing the best resources to support curriculum, teacher-librarians support digital literacy and innovative learning practices – inquiry-based, project-based – for students and teachers. They actively connect learning to technology and resources, and facilitate knowledge creation for the school community. They are on a continuing quest to find new ways of supporting students in their learning. The role is multi-faceted, challenging, ever-evolving, and ultimately highly rewarding because the impact can be so significant."

Digital bookmarking  is a pivotal learning skill. It does not only allow you to organize your information into one single platform accessible from anywhere with an internet connection but can also help you in your professional growth. Web2.0 technologies have made it way easier for us to control and curate the content we come across online. I definitely believe that without the power of bookmarking we would never be able to manage the huge influx of information Internet provides. I have already talked in a previous post about the benefits of bookmarking for us as teachers and learner and I said that bookmarking web tools:
