Student and Staff engagement with iBooks Author

Hohepa Spooner, Auckland University of Technology Part of CW12

Teachers in tertiary education need strategies to communicate directly and individually with students and engage them with technology advances like iBooks Author to shape and entice educational experiences for them. The Apple iPad with the iBooks Author application and the iPad iBooks app has the potential to make what was previously the preserve of technology-savvy educators, access to effective and efficient pedagogy in an easy and intuitive way. My presentation will cover how the use of the iPad and Apple applications in teaching over the last 10 months is used to enhance engagement with learning for tertiary teaching.
