Nick Urban's curator insight, July 17, 3:59 PM

Using technology to do old-fashioned mapping assignments is an amazing addition to the social studies classroom. This tutorial will allow teachers to become knowledgable in the latest apps and how to fashion a mapping assignment using Keynote or Gimp. It also allows the user to create an interactive map that encourages collaboration and sharing on several unique topics. The addition of animation and layovers also enhances the learning experience so students can see movement over time.

Tough Choices for Publishers working with iBooks Author

Tough Choices for Publishers working with iBooks Author | Publishing with iBooks Author | Scoop.it
iBooks Author, Apple, eBooks, books, interactive books, digital books, ePub, iPhone, iPad, Mac
Peter Pappas's insight:

"The ePubs, built for the iPhone, work on the iPad. But they scream “ePub”. So for now a designer has to make a choice: two books, one design; or two books, two designs; or one book, one design."

iBooks Author is iPhone ready

iBooks Author is iPhone ready | Publishing with iBooks Author | Scoop.it

We have great news for all of us creating eBooks using iBooks Author because the rumor was true, we will be able to enjoy our interactive eBooks also on iPhone and iPod Touch with the update to iOS 8.4. We´ve heard some rumours about this since las year (2014), but during this month (June) these rumours grew more and more. Today I downloaded iOS 8.4 beta to test this theory and they totally work, they work a little bit different than with using the iPad but I was surprised how Apple pulled it off. These are a few thing I found using an iPhone 5S

Peter Pappas's insight:

This is the first demo I've seen. And it's good news for for viewing iBA created iBooks on iPhones.
