Rather than muddy the waters with another adult’s opinion of Apple’s latest announcement, I thought I’d let the middle school students in Belle Haven’s MOUSE Squad share their opinions after an hour of trying out the free samples of the new textbooks in iBooks:
My favorite thing they shared was the part about liking taking the quizzes because it didn’t count toward their grade and they learned more. I’m sure I’ll share my thoughts on another day, but until then, what do your students think of the new approach to textbooks?
[edit: I changed the video I’m linking to in order to allow you to hear the students’ voices better. Please share any feedback with me and I’ll work on it.]
