iPads in the Classroom: From Consumption and Curation to Creation

Co-authors Tom Daccord and Justin Reich (co-founders of EdTechTeacher) craft a meaningful and powerful vision and process of iPad integration for school teachers and school administrators — as well as parents. iPads in the Classroom: From Consumption and Curation to Creation features case studies, practical strategies, and specific apps that make the book directly applicable to classroom practice.

What Does Awesome Look Like?

At EdTechTeacher, we have the benefit of working with and hearing from educators from around the world. However, until now, we haven’t had a way to curate all of these great ideas into one place. Since we often use collaborative eBooks as a great example of how to share ideas while creating an amazing, media-rich learning artifact, we decided to leverage the power of Book Creator (available on iOS and Android) to create a Teacher Activity Book. 

Volume I and II are available for free! Please provide your email below, and you will be sent a copy of the book to download for viewing in iBooks.
