Start with the assumption that your work can be improved


The biggest mistake writers make is assuming that once they have submitted a piece of writing, that is finished… and perfect.

When will iBooks become the norm in schools?

When will iBooks become the norm in schools? | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

There is an infographic with this article that looks at the ongoing debate called 'Can Apple Do It Again? How Apple's iBooks will change the way we iLearn."
