Daniel Mullings's insight:

We are calling for a new generation in education to develop iBooks using two tools 


Ibooks Author


iBooks Author makes it simple to flow in text, graphics, films and more, so your book looks exactly the way you want. Drag and drop a Pages or Microsoft Word document to the Book pane to add it as a new section. Then, when you drag and drop in images, your text automatically flows around them.


OS X Mavericks operating system


With OS X Mavericks, a new chapter in the iBooks story begins. Now you can launch the iBooks app on your Mac and the books you’ve already downloaded on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch will automatically appear in your library. And there are over two million more books in the iBooks Store, ready for you to download with just a few clicks.

Reading books is intuitive and easy — turn pages with a swipe and zoom in on images with a pinch. If you’re a student hitting the books, keep as many open as you like and search through them with ease. And when you take notes, highlight passages or add a bookmark on your Mac, iCloud pushes them to all your devices automatically. iCloud even remembers which page you’re on. So if you start reading on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, you can pick up where you left off on your Mac.

you must already create lesson plans and resources so why not a Ibook?. 

This way, you get to demonstrate your IT skills, work ethic and quality of learning resources, helping to make the teaching more efficient as teachers and developing material for todays learners.

This is another appeal for schools to get real. Yes,  you didn’t want tablets. Yes, you were worried about wireless. Yes, you were cost.
