Changing the Classroom and the World with iBooks Author

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

iBooks Author is a program that allows the teacher to better engage the class, connect the material to the students, and differentiate among the students based on skill or interest. The session will begin with a one-hour interactive Presentation, which allows the audience to ask questions and go through the material at their own pace. Seeing as how the three presenters have experience in the classroom ranging from teacher- to student-oriented use, we can cover different ways that the audience can incorporate it into their schools. After that we will have a two-hour workshop where we will differentiate based on comfort level with the program. Whether with basic steps or an advanced tutorial, we will enable the audience to leave the room with an understanding of how to use it and why they should.

All three presenters are co-founders of the weekly Twitter #ibookschat. We formed the chat to offer teachers the opportunity to discuss and grow their knowledge of iBooks Author.
