    In 2013 Chenango Forks sponsored the first area iBooks workshop and the results were amazing. More than 30 participants from around the area learned, collaborated and created iBooks for use in their classrooms. We are proud to announce the 3rd of these Workshops! We hope you can join us!

    The purpose of the iBooks Authoring Collaborative is to train educators in designing high-quality, media-rich, interactive iBooks for education. In addition, this year our goal has grown to include...
    "Creating Customized/Interactive Texts For Any Platform: Using iBooks Author to create personalized texts for use with any computer or mobile device."

    Imagine if all of your classroom textbooks together weighed less than 2 pounds, contained interactive widgets and videos to support multiple modes of learning, gave learners immediate feedback on quizzes, and was easy to re-mix, personalize, and distribute to students. This isn't 2050, this is now!

    As classroom instructors, we see the incredible benefits of using interactive digital books to increase student learning and transform classroom time into one of a deeper application of content. However, it is quite a process to create this interactive content...unless we work together. Together we will be smarter, stronger.

    The goal of this project is to collaborate with a team of passionate educators creating Common Core aligned interactive units. We are looking for educators that are willing to collaborate to create, curate and share quality interactive modules to remix, update, compile and distribute to students.

    This year's Collaborative Workshop will be August 5-7 from 8AM to 3PM at Chenango Forks High School PD Room. Lunch is on your own from 11:30-12:30. Plan to bring material to create an iBook (documents, video, etc) on a flash drive and a MacBook if you have one. We have a limited number of Macs available for use.
