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.
