My 1st e-Textbook....To really embrace Flipping my Classroom I have created my 1st e-Textbook. This book is full of video clips, interactive review questions, and screen shots. I designed this book by topics not necessary chapters. My Computer Apps class is an 18 week long course. During the course I have to cover the topics of Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Research, and Email to name a few.
My goal was to make this e-Textbook interactive and full of resources for my students. I also wanted to pair this book with my classroom website. I created a few videos clips with Green-Screen Effect. I also made a few quick intro video clips via PowTown. I loved that I could link to video clips from Google, Prezi, SlideRocket, and Glogster Edu. Why reinvent the wheel if the creator of the tool already made a video clip?
What I love about this is that there is a Glossary and a place built in for kids to take notes. This is my 1st try at an interactive e-Textbook and I am sure I will be making revisions.
The possibilities for e-Textbooks are endless.
