Tenho certeza que esse app deve ter outras funcionalidades, mas como eu sou uma pessoa simples que tem um Ipad que não é 3g, esse app me ganhou. Agora quando tenho um intervalinho de 30min, pego o iPad e vou ler aquele artigo que não consegui na noite anterior pois os olhos já estavam fechando.

The important thing about e-books is this: the reader matters a lot less than the content. Over time, I've found myself using iBooks less and less and less, as I now turn almost exclusively to Kindle for my iPad reading.
Creating an eBook online is no rocket science and anyone with the rudimentary knowledge of how to use internet can get his/her eBook up and viral in a couple of minutes provided the content part of it is already written in a word document. I find the typing and editing part the most difficult stage in this process; however, if you just want to set up a short ebook for your students then that would not take you much time.

The impact for Boy's Literacy is important.
In my view this really is the future and is worth investing your time in it.
iPads are an effective tool used within classrooms as it keeps students engaged with their work. Walsh (2009) discusses the affect technology is having on society as well as in the classrooms. As students are now given the opportunity to read electronically, allowing students to visually and interactively view novels through technological advancements such as iPad’s, enhances ones understanding of specific issues as it allows information to be read, listened to and comprehended in an interesting manner. Nonetheless the use of technology in the classroom does not come without opportunities as well as challenges for the teachers who use them to support learning. The main aim of the research project throughout this source was to see the effect iPads as an eBook has on students and if it has any impact on their learning. Results showed that although the students participating in the study reported an increase in engagement when using the iPad, there was not a corresponding rise in achievement. It was also seen that at times it served as a distracter and it also frustrated attempts to engage the students in “offline” discussion, suggesting there are strong implications for pedagogy. This source allows teachers to be prepared for any problems they may encounter when using iPads in the classroom as well as being able to relate to the other teachers that had mixed feelings.
Teaching strategies that can be implemented in the classroom with the use of iPads include having students use a range of applications that the teacher can download relating to any topic. For example when teaching Maths the teacher can resort to the range of application that teach students how to add and subtract in an engaging manner. Students can also use their iPads as an eBook and read and write about a range of books. This will ensure that all students are engaged and interacting with their work. Following on, as a form of assessment, the students can then read and write about the same book without the use of technology and have students discuss their experience with the rest of the class. Observing and recording how students respond is also an effective tool when assessing students.

Math gets all the love--at least that appears to be the case in the edtech world. But applications of automated essay scoring have been growing steadily for 15 years.
"We all know how traditional book reports work: read a book, then write a summary to prove you read the book. I have had to drag them out of my students in the past and can relate because teachers had to drag them out of me.
So what is a Book Trailer? It’s simply an advertisement for a book. Like a movie trailer, it highlights story elements without giving everything away to entice your interest."
