iPad as an i-Reader - An Orientation for Educators View a tutorial on this topic

Platform: Device and iPad


The potential appeal of Apple’s® iPad®/iPad 2 as a reader for electronic books and documents (an i-Reader, if you will) can be summed up as “Big Touch, Small Package.”

This workshop provides an orientation, as much as possible from an educator’s perspective, to the e-Reading capabilities of the iPad, to some emerging trends in e-Reading, and to iPad accessibility options that are pertinent to its use as an e-Reader. There are also some practical lessons on self-publishing and managing content for reading on the iPad.
