Topic for the 1/27/13 #storyappchat: the iBookstore

Apple's iBook AppWhile it’s true we’ve done chats before on the topic of the iBookstore, we thought it made sense to revisit it, given the rise of one-stop DIY tools like Book Creator and excellent technical resources like the tutorials and how-to books from Liz Castro. With a little bit of help and an entrepreneurial spirit, anyone can create robust and very app-like titles for Apple’s iBookstore.

Of course, others are using Apple’s free iBooks Author tool to create content, and that’s pretty exciting too.

So: let’s talk about it this Sunday (January 27) at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific. Just start using the #storyappchat hashtag on Twitter about that time, and we will look for you then!


Transcript for the 6/10/12 #storyappchat: Jon Smith (@theipodteacher)

So glad to get the perspective from inside a classroom, and a special ed classroom at that. This chat was guest hosted by Jon Smith (@theipodteacher) who told us all about his experiences using iBooks Author to publish student work as iBooks. Jon has revealed himself as a true trailblazer with regard to bringing technology into the classroom. Check out the 16-page transcript and see for yourself!

Remember, we chat every Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. Next Sunday (June 17) we’ll welcome Amanda from the iMums review team. Don’t miss it!

Guest Host for the 6/10/12 #storyappchat: Jon Smith

#storyappchat topic badgeOur guest host for this Sunday’s #storyappchat comes straight from the classroom: Jon Smith, otherwise known as @theiPodteacher. And the timing couldn’t be better, because Math Our Way, the latest iBook created by his students, has just been approved and is now available on iTunes.

Jon will share how his classroom has had success using iBooks Author to create books, and how he’s used technology to bring out the best in his students. He’ll be standing by to answer questions about this, as well as his success publishing to the iBooks store and using Apple’s tool.

Join us THIS Sunday, June 10 at 9:00 p.m. EDT/6:00 p.m. PDT. Just start tweeting with the #storyappchat hashtag. Be there or be square!
