For each chapter covered in the text book, his students could create an eBook. This publication would then be broken down into units much like the paper version. Because BookCreator pulls from the Camera roll, any images or video that can be exported to that location could then be incorporated into the final product. Consider adding labels to photos of the text with Skitch, screen captures of graphs created with GeometryPad, or videos exported out of ExplainEverything. Combine this with text boxes that include relevant theorems or vocabulary, and students could essentially create documentation of their own problem solving and learning. Completed books can then be sent to iBooks and placed in a specific collection.
We then discussed workflow and how the students could “turn in” their books. However, we decided that rather than a technical solution such as sending to DropBox or Google Drive, the value would be in conferencing with the student before each chapter assessment to review their work. At the end of the year, a final conference would provide a holistic view of their work over entire course. By creating a math portfolio in iBooks, the students also gain a customized exam review system in addition to the documentation of their learning process.
