Worksheets in iBook | ipadders.eu

Worksheets in iBook | ipadders.eu | New Technologies in Schools | Scoop.it

On a typical paper worksheets a question would normally look something like this: What are the different figurative language techniques used in in this text.”
__________________________________________________________
The lines on the paper gives students the space to write their answers. Unfortunately, iBooks Author only allows you to put in multiple choice questions. The iBookWidgets app does allow you to put in text questions but they’re not always aesthetically pleasing and can be a time consuming process.
An easier option is to write the question in your iBook and let students type their answers in a note like below.
An added bonus is that all notes are automatically saved to the “My Notes” part of the iBook.

Cost of Digital Textbook Access from a Student’s Perspective

Cost of Digital Textbook Access from a Student’s Perspective | New Technologies in Schools | Scoop.it

"David Wiley had an eye-opening post earlier this week where he compared different types of digital content pricing from a student’s perspective. In his view:

Online, on demand access to one textbook (~$19/month) costs more than online, on demand access to every major movie, TV show, and song produced in the US in recent memory ($7.99 + $9.99 = $17.98/month). Really. One textbook costs more than the entire output of the film, television, and music industries combined..."

The iPad Mini – It doesn’t suck! – Device Comparison Grid for Kids’ Tablets | The Digital Media Diet

The iPad Mini – It doesn’t suck! – Device Comparison Grid for Kids’ Tablets | The Digital Media Diet | New Technologies in Schools | Scoop.it

I was skeptical as I purchased my 4th iPad, the new iPad mini on Friday when it arrived at my local Apple store. I was expecting lower performance or at least to be unimpressed by the smaller screen size. But in the end, this could be one of the best holiday gifts this season, especially for children.

 

Overall, the iPad mini is great for reading, including book apps and has access to a sea of iPad content for education and gaming. The smaller size can be a downside for video (especially since the iPad Mini lacks the retina display & processor of the latest iPad), and this tablet may not be ideal for advanced gaming experiences, but is more than enough for most users.

 

See our device comparison grid, including our ratings of content selection & prices for education and reading apps for the iPad Mini, full size iPad, Nook Color, Kindle Fire, and Nexus 7.
