As a parent, I’m always interested in ways to improve my daughters’ learning experiences. The girls’ experience at school is a lot different to the Apple IIe days that I lived in (didn’t do too badly though). This Youtube video by Apple on their Textbooks struck a chord with me, especially the part about lugging around huge and heavy textbooks that would only be used for a year or so and become outdated almost as soon as they were published. The way that students also are able to interact with Apple Textbooks is sure to make learning more fun and effective. More reasons why Apple is the successful company that it is – what other tech company spends so much time in schools with teachers trying to improve learning?
Just opened up iBooks and downloaded the “Life On Earth” textbook to show to my girls in the
next couple of minutes. It’s featured in the video below and looks amazing. Also…it’s FREE!
