Apple revolutionized the smart phone with beautiful design. Then they “schooled” tech world by creating a gorgeous tablet. Although I am underwhlemed by the details regarding the Apple iBooks, I am excited to watch their involvement move the conversation forward.

As a teacher, this is huge. With Apple’s typical dragand- drop interface, I can quickly and easily create an interactive document for my students. This entails a considerable amount of work, but the opportunities for my classroom are huge.
Will textbooks with images, videos, and dynamic features revolutionize teaching and learning? No. Will they make a marginal improvement in student engagement and learning—in the right schools they probably can. ?
