Digital Book Pioneers

Partnership with student teachers from University of Nottingham reaps rewards

 

Congratulations to 25 student teachers from The University of Nottingham Initial Teacher Education programmes.

They spent a week working with the Learning Technologies team at The de Ferrers Academy (an Apple Distinguished School) and visiting experts to learn:

  • How to use Apple technologies, including MacBook and iPad
  • Best approaches to integrating digital tools and resources into learning structures
  • How to design and create interactive digital books
  • Ways to create effective video and animation

18 of the students became certified Apple teachers during their week and 12 books out of 13 have now been published - just in time for GCSE and A level exams.

The books are free to download in 51 countries around the world - click on the links below:
