Digital Books

You can now download a range of free digital, multitouch books produced in-house by our teachers and our Digital Developer at The de Ferrers Academy. These are interactive and immersive, designed to help students explore key idaes using their iPad.

Go to www.itunes/com/deferrers or search for 'de ferrers' in iTunes or the iBook Store.

We also have a number of books produced as part of an innovative project with PGCE students from The University of Nottingham, supported by Apple. 26 Initial Teacher Trainee students spent a week at The Academy in June 2016 and June 2017 learning how to create digital books and instructional video on Mac and iPad, with tutoring from University lecturers, digital authors and Apple Distinguished Educators.

The project was a finalist for the TES Digital Innovation Awards in 2017.

We will be repeating the project in May 2018.

All these books have been made available (free) in 51 countries, for any staff/students to download and use.
