Cyd Madsen's curator insight, May 31, 2013 6:46 AM

This is awesome.  So much theory of teaching collides with the practice.  This could be a great way for teachers in the trenches share their experience and get genuine change in education happening.

Denise Weinhoeft-Renfro's comment, July 5, 2013 12:17 PM
This is truly a great tool in my estimation, but theory and reality also collide with technology. If you are not 1:1 then the potential of the app is not getting used in the best way that it can.
Peter Pappas's comment, July 5, 2013 12:22 PM
Good point Denise. I'm hoping it's something school will grow into over time.

Ralph Springett's curator insight, April 22, 2013 12:59 PM

Goodproduct, but if we are going to ask faculty to turn their study guides into ebooks they will need time and often they will need support to get the full benefit of the multimedia available.

Study Smarter – Take Notes And Highlight Text Within iBooks [iOS Tips] | Cult of Mac | TechInfusion | Scoop.it

Ebooks are all the rage these days, and your iPad is a perfect device for reading them. Textbooks, too, are becoming de riguer for many students in college and even high school, as educators, schools, and publishers find a greater demand for electronic instructional materials.

 

But studying from a book requires interacting with the text at a greater level than just reading it, of course, as students need to keep track of specific passages, or comment on them as they relate to their learning or lecture notes. Most eReading apps, like Nook and Kindle, have these features as well, but iBooks definitely has the most well designed, so let’s take a look at how to use it to study with your electronic books."

Carol Leynse Harpold's curator insight, February 24, 2013 7:25 AM

iBooks not only speaks the selection but it can also highlight text in different colors and create notes. Great way to provide the tools for using reading strategies to electronic text.

Creating ePub books in apps like Pages, Creative Book Builder allows you to create your own texts for students.
