BHS Presence in Apple's Big Education Press Conference Today

Apple made a big announcement this morning about a new resource that it has created to allow educators to create their own textbooks.  While we have been working at this at BHS a little bit already by creating e-Pubs, the new iBooks Author looks like a much easier tool for us to continue this work.  In addition, Apple announced the expansion of it's iTunes U to include textbooks for K-12 and not just Higher Ed.

The new video that went up on the Apple Website today to announce the new tool to create textbooks has a number of clips from BHS, including an excerpt of BHS Science Teacher Chuck Wood. You can check it out here.

You can also see some more Burlington staff members in a video that was played at the beginning of the press conference. If you do not want to watch the entire 60 minutes, you can see te BHS staff members just after the 3:45 mark.

We'll be blogging more about how this announcement will impact our work here at BHS soon!
