Fostering Creation Using iPads for Student created ebooks and iBooks


Published on

First presented the the Vancouver iOS Summit in February 2015.
Publishing digital books today is now really easy. Whether you have 1 iPad or 30 iPads in your classroom, you can guide students to create amazing work. Mobile devices today can be used to weave together audio, video, images, & text in creative ways (App Smashing). This session will show you how to get students away from consuming content to be creators of content and then publishing it as a digital book. Digital creation can engage students at any grade level while enhancing their writing, understanding and critical thinking skills. We will discuss why you should create digital books in your classroom and how to create them with easy apps and techniques. You will see many sample eBooks that students have created to give you ideas and inspiration.
