I can also imagine iPad text books, complete with multi-media interactivity. Does that image fascinate you? Well click on it and watch it morph into a mini-movie vignette on the topic. Click on the caption and be taken directly to an interactive website on the topic. Click on the highlighted hyperlinked words in the text body and be taken directly to linked sections of the chapter. Its really exciting to think of all of the possibilities.
Here at Curriculum Essentials, we are not the only ones thinking about the potential of the iPad for learning. Schools across the nation are getting ready to launch a variety of pilot projects this fall, in middle schools, high schools, and colleges.
To learn more about one such project, please visit the article "iPad pilots launching this fall in higher ed," at eschool news.
