Hands-on with iBooks Author 2.0 - iPad/iPhone - Macworld UK

Hands-on with iBooks Author 2.0 - iPad/iPhone - Macworld UK | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

"Originally released in early 2012, Apple’s education-themed ebook creation tool took bold steps as the first WYSIWYG program to export an ebook just as its author envisioned it. As I noted in my review of that software,http://www.macworld.com/article/1165172/ibooks_author_fashions_multimedia_books_for_the_ipad.html ; however, the first version of iBooks Author was very much a 1.0 product, with strange omissions and odd workflows for users who didn’t want to build textbooks. Ten months later, an updated version—iBooks Author 2.0 (Mac App Store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ibooks-author/id490152466 )—brings simplified tools, new templates, portrait-only options, and a better publishing workflow to the table. Naturally, I couldn't resist taking the updated program for a spin."

3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic

3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Dear “Nervous To Try Something New With EdTech”: You know when you spoke with me the other day and told me that that introducing more tech into my class was fine for me because I was ‘into it’ and ‘understood’ it? That you were not going to try a new way of doing things (edtech-wise) …

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 22, 10:41 PM

I've done edtech training for nervous teachers since the days of the Apple ll and the  Commodore 64. Some things never change.  I think it's not so much the fear of tech as it is the fear of losing control of a class when the tech fails (as it always will).  


The cure? Perhaps being flexible enough to have multiple fall back positions when the tech crashes and accepting the role of teacher as learner as you learn the ropes along with your students. 

Rocio Watkins's curator insight, Today, 12:39 AM

Great article - supports the SAMR theoretical framework for gradual introduction to technology integration in the classroom.
