Peter Pappas's insight:

Prior to class they had curated their content on a Learnist board and looked at each other's work leaving comments and suggestions. Now that they had finalized their  content, I supplied them with an iBA template chapter to work from. I gave them brief instruction in iBA widgets and layout. Using their prewritten text, selected images and video, they used about 2 hours of labtime to complete their chapters. 

 

Next step, I compile their chapters into a single iBook and we use some class time to critique and see how chapters fit together. We collectively design a cover and intro. After some final edits, I'll upload to iTunes. 

 

Student publication in just a few hours of labtime (with research and writing done in advance)
