The iBook Author Project: Transforming the Classroom.

We’re pretty excited about the prospect of using Google Glass in education. So much so that we wrote a whole ‘Teacher’s Guide To Google Glass’ and have chatted with a few teachers and early adopters who are already using the hardware.

How to Incorporate Video Into Your Haiku Decks
Earlier this week I shared 76 examples of Haiku Deck being used in school and then I shared Ken Shelton's great presentation on the importance of visuals in storytelling.

A Handful of Apps to Add to Your New iPad (even if you don’t take it to school)
Every year at this time I publish a short list of the apps that I recommend installing if you received a new iPad during this holiday season. Even if you don’t take your new iPad to school, these apps are helpful. I have terrible typing technique and I like to sketch ideas before writing about them.
