eBooks

Kerry led a great session on eBooks and ePubs after school today. And that's tough to do because of all the choices out there. She focused on iBooks, Kindle, Nook, and Google Books. With so many options out there, it's important to find one that is going to fit your needs the best.

I thought Kerry did an awesome job of showing teachers how an app like iBooks could be used with students. There are great organizational features that allow you to sort your books and pdfs in categories. Teachers could create their curriculum by moving downloaded eBooks, self-created ePubs, and pdfs by class or content area. Another great tool is the ability to highlight and write notes within the app. What a great way for students to record their thinking!
