eBooks in general and iBooks in particular, can be an excellent tool for publishing your work, sharing with peers and colleagues, delivering and differentiating instruction, and publishing student work. Multi-touch (aka enhanced) eBooks, such as iBooks, can include text, images,and interactive content, including multimedia (both embedded and streaming), layered information, assessment of various types, and other widgets. Putting some combination of these data types together to make a high quality educational product depends on foundation in three areas:understanding of research on learning and learning styles, differentiating instruction,instructional design, integrating technology in education settings, and assessment in general and the reading process in particular;content area knowledge; and practical understanding of layout, design, and practical capability with the technology and tools with which the product is created.Participants will review applicable research and learn how technology applications can be used to eBooks, allowing them to showcase their content knowledge in one or more new multi-touch iBooks that are designed to impact their teaching practice.
