If Elisabeth Rosinel's story inspired you or piqued your interest in ibooks, this newly published FREE how-to ibook might be just what you need.
Pamela Johnson teaches English as a second language and uses iBooks Author to create multimedia content for her students to access on their iPads. Ms Johnson created Teaching Language Classes Using iBooks Author and the iPad
to demonstrate the range of textsand activities that can be built into an ibook and how to make it all look vibrant, engaging and professional. It's free and available for download from Tuesday 21 January 2014.
If you are not sure what an ibook is, this is a great example to explore. On every page I found myself saying things like, "Oh, I see. I could use that to ... " or "Wow. That would be great for kids to practise listening / memorising / speaking."
Pamela is obviously an accomplished teacher because she emphasises the purpose and planning stages of creating a new book. The really exciting part, however, is the detailed information on HOW to create an ibook with text, audio, images, pop-overs, activities etc. There are examples of and links to additional widgets such as iBook-Widgets
to make the content even more interactive. You really need to see for yourself the wide range of activity types available.
Is anyone interested in forming a small teach-ourselves group to learn how to make an ibook? If so please contact AISWA Languages
