Bring your own iPad to this FREE 3 hour, hands-on digital workshop where we’ll learn how to create and share enhanced eBooks. Enhanced eBooks can include recorded audio as well as images and text.

This is a FREE meetup/workshop led by Dr. Wesley Fryer. Homeschoolers, classroom teachers, parents, grandparents, and anyone interested in creating enhanced eBooks as well as helping kids create enhanced ebooks are welcome to attend. Students 10 years old and older are also welcome to attend WITH a parent. More information is available about Wesley’s ebook “Playing with Media: simple ideas for powerful sharing” (2011) and “Mapping Media to the Common Core” (Feb 2013). More resources and links about creating enhanced eBooks are also available on Wesley’s wiki for this workshop: wiki.wesfryer.com/Home/handouts/ebooks
I’m very excited that the latest version of Book Creator for iPad (version 2.4) now supports hyperlinks as well as combining multiple projects into a single eBook. This is GREAT news for many folks, including students and teachers creating eBooks in the classroom, for class projects, or just for fun! I hope to see you tomorrow morning at Northwest Library in Oklahoma City for this fun morning of eBook learning, playing, and creating!
