This year at school we launched a new Professional Learning program, where we are encouraged as teachers to research topics of interest to us in order to reflect and record our own professional development. The final outcome is a book produced in iBooks Author and then published to the ibooks Store.
I have always been interested in publishing and you can read about my experience using the great BookCreator App here. My role as a learning technologies coach means I get to work with teachers and share ideas, helping them implement them in their own classrooms. This has led me to co-publish with Maria Ruiz my own book on the iBooks Store!
The experience has also served as preparation for the book I will produce at the end of the school year, reflecting on my own professional development as well as my teaching. I now feel better prepared to make an even better book next time!
If you are new to the use of technology and would like to read some easy to implement ideas for starting to use formative assessment in your digital classroom, please download the book here!
The whole process is not complicated and made easy by the step by step publishing, making it possible for anyone to become a publisher!
