Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org: Transferring Books to #iPad 2 @jrlallo

Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org: Transferring Books to #iPad 2 @jrlallo | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
"Wondering how to easily transfer books to your iPad without iTunes? One of my primary objections to Apple devices is how they "lock" you into their products. While the use of such products--iTunes is one example--by computer neophytes limits their level of frustration (and, those of you struggling with Ubuntu's forced use of Unity desktop, you know the feeling, too), it is a pain for those a bit more tech-savvy."

"So we’ve been having quite a bit of fun. Last week my third graders learned about how to cite images and videos that they use from Discovery Education. It was so much fun to watch them learn about giving credit to the creator of the image. The next day we were working with our high school buddies when one of my third graders took the initiative to show his partner how to save images on the iPad from DE and cite them."
