Mac Intros Another Game Changer

January 19, 2012

Folks have been talking about the educational potential of the iPad since its inception. (here’s an example from our friends at mashable.com)  Well, today Apple announced their new textbook experience, iBooks 2.  Here students will be able to find textbooks on myriad of subjects.  The distinction is the unique, visual, animated, and interactive nature of the new textbooks, creating a learning experience that is leaps and bounds ahead of anything we’ve yet experienced.  In addition, they created a new piece of software, called iBooks Author, and are offering it for free.  This allows publishing companies, and even teachers themselves, to create learning opportunities to specific subjects and lesson plans.

Never thought I’d say this, but, oh to be in high school again.
