So I have iPads in the school… Now what?!?! This summer, walk through a practical demonstration of Apple’s free iBooksAuthor (IBA) software. Be introduced to IBA and see the potential to design interactive modules, create customized lessons, and ensure students who are away do not miss recourses.
The goal of iBookHack is to walk teachers through a practical demonstration of Apple’s free iBooksAuthor (IBA) software. iBookHack introduces IBA to the learner, shows the potential to design interactive modules and walks the learner through the journey from dreaming and concept, to advanced design to distribution. There are advantages of digitally sharing resources from ensuring students who are way do not miss resources to the individualization of program all the way through to the pragmatic considerations such as where do I file and distribute materials for students. With an iBook resource simple things such as kids adding graffiti in the margins of books is eliminated. Resources can be easily updated and customized to meet the learners needs. iBookHack is designed to help teachers create individual lessons in IBA all the way to customized interactive textbooks.
By the end of this Summer Institute participants will know:
- How to construct, and will have, an inactive iBook lesson/unit ready for use with their students in new term.
- Understand concepts of instructional design. Teachers will be able to create interactive resources, demonstrate competency with tablets in the class room and show students how they can create their own iBooks as a demonstration of learning. Software skills that are transferable across platforms and devices.
- A greater sense of confidence in the use of technology in the classroom and its appropriate use with curriculum related resources.
