Go MAD for a new iBook resource
Hello everyone and happy term 1 for all the teachers out there knuckling down with new classes, syllabuses and paperwork! I have 2 things that may help you in 2016….
We are proud to announce the publication of our very first free iBook educational resource! Thanks to Blacktown City Council and many teachers who helped in the design of this book it is now available for download on the iBookstore.
“What happens to the rain” is a student enquiry based multi-touch book that looks at urban water management and healthy waterways. It is highly interactive with quizzes, videos, games, pop ups and embedded apps to keep students enagaged.
Designed for Stage 3 (but useful for stage 2 and 4 also!) it comes with a 10 week unit of work for the NSW Science and Technology syllabus. The unit encompasses the skill of “working technologically”. The iBook will work on an iPad, iPhone or Mac computer.
Download for free from the iBookstore https://itunes.apple.com/au/book/what-happens-to-the-rain/id1084586515?mt=11
