Students in Mr. Germanier’s history class have started to create an ebook for storing their notes and learning activities. As well as using an electronic version of their textbook for reference, students used Book Creator on the iPad to include images and text. We look forward to seeing the finished product!
Many teachers and their students have opted to use digital textbooks this year. As well as reduced weight in students’ bags, digital books allow students to rapidly access parts of the textbook that they are using, allow notes and highlights to be stored in one place, can be zoomed for easier reading and are synchronized across multiple devices.
