"The ePub Generation; The Alexandrian Libraries of the Future"


eBook Overview
The primary focus for educators should be on expanding the quantity and quality of ways in which the learner is exposed to content and context.  Educators should design extended learning opportunities in ways that immerse students in content by using various existing technology tools that include wiki’s, blogs, and multi-media interactive eBooks. The premise of  expanding educational delivery in ways to include Web 2.0 opportunities is  constructed around the idea that the more children can experience what they are learning and the more teachers immerse students in the learning process the more engaged students will become in interacting, listening, viewing and valuing their education.

In this interactive eBook you will find video , audio and illustrated text, edited directly from my iPad. The first chapter is fittingly named "The ePub Generation," since it was my first self published book using the ePub format, a term I learned from Kevin Honeycutt in July of 2011. Since that time I have been putting forth hours of additional time in research and development to create my first ePub publication, all for the cost of one App at $3.99. I would encourage  you to download the eBook and read it from iBook; just to get a feel for what might be the next generation of textbooks, created by teachers for students or even better created by students for students.

The eBook includes, twelve pages of text, five illustrations, one podcast, one audio recording, and two videos. Turn the pages , play the media files, enjoy the visuals, and read text. It truly is an interactive book which took one hour to create.

To download the free e-book for your mobile device go to  Tech N TuIT free eBook wiki page and select the download tab.
