Creating ePubs: A Model for Multi-District Collaboration | Edutopia | iPads and Tablets in Education | Scoop.it
There is a growing buzz in the education community about the possibility of moving away from traditional textbooks. While the objective seems clear as to why we should be making this move, the question of how to transition this great shift remains. Educators creating their own digital resource for the classroom possesses great value, but at this point there are still more questions than answers.

Ex-Pixar Designer Creates Astounding Kids' Book On iPad

Ex-Pixar Designer Creates Astounding Kids' Book On iPad | iPads and Tablets in Education | Scoop.it
E-books are already a fraught subject for many readers, writers, publishers and designers, but children's e-books are even more so. Is it rotting their minds? Is it as good as good ol' paper? Is it too interactive for their own good? Obviously there are no practical answers to such questions, but at least one children's e-book/app/thingie (what do we call these things, again?) is doing it very, very right. It's called "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore," and it's like a well-written bedtime story and an immersive animated movie at once -- without being "too much" of either.
