Free Technology for Teachers: 110 Page Guide to Publishing With iBooks Author | digital books and readers | Scoop.it

"Publishing with iBooks Author is a free 110 page publication from O'Reilly Media. I  just discovered the guide a couple of days ago and I wish I had found it earlier because it would have saved me a lot of time in learning how to use iBooks Author. Publishing with iBooks Author covers everything from copyright, DRM, and the End User Agreement to templates, layouts, media insertion, publishing, and distribution."

It's the Pedagogy, Stupid: Lessons from an iPad Lending Program

It's the Pedagogy, Stupid: Lessons from an iPad Lending Program | digital books and readers | Scoop.it

The truth is that the iPad is not destined to change the face of education. Nor is it just an expensive toy bought only by Apple fanboys, as some anti-Apple bloggers hyperbolize. It's a tool, like any other, and in the classroom it must always be thought of as being in the service of pedagogy. The pedagogical foundations must be solid, because the tool will achieve no heights the underlying pedagogy will not support.

A Guide To Managing A Classroom Full Of iPads

A Guide To Managing A Classroom Full Of iPads | digital books and readers | Scoop.it

Logistics here are usually left to an over-worked school or district IT person—or worse, to the classroom teacher. But did you know that iPad storage can also impact classroom management?
