Make-your-own-ebooks platform: Aerbook Maker | School Library Teachers: Collaborators of Knowledge | Scoop.it

I’ve spent the past few months reporting on platforms that help school librarians make ebooks available to their patrons. But what about librarians and other educators who want to go beyond a read-only experience and enable their students to easily create, share—and even market—their very own slick, tablet-ready graphical ebooks and mobile apps? Enter Aerbook Maker.

Which Academic Fields will Dominate Mobile Apps? | The New Media Consortium

Which Academic Fields will Dominate Mobile Apps? | The New Media Consortium | School Library Teachers: Collaborators of Knowledge | Scoop.it

These days, a smartphone is practically worthless without apps. It's like an empty vessel without cargo or passengers. A window with no view. Ok, you get the picture.

In the past year, we've witnessed an explosion in the number of apps being created and used for teaching, learning, and creative inquiry. All education sectors, from K-12 to Higher Ed to museums, have embraced them as tools for enhacing the in-class and out-of-class experience. Students can walk on the moon, learn a foreign language, visit a historic building that doesn't exist anymore, and check their course schedule and grades -- all in a matter of minutes from a single device. Teachers can send instant alerts, update a class syllabus, put together a collection of helpful resources, and devise brilliant lesson plans thanks to apps.
