The Bronx Office of Educational Technology offers the first iBooks Author institute for New York City Educators.


Teachers from Bronx schools participated in a 3 day institute to learn iBooks Author.  Over the three days, Instructional Specialist Luis Aviles engaged participants in a hands-on creative lab to develop interactive core content books aligned to their PBL units, STEM and the Common Core Standards.  The iBooks will be utilized with students during the instructional day and online anytime anywhere. The outcome was fantastic.  Teachers created books with a focus on Communities, Immigration, Computer Literacy, Bronx River, Ratios and Fractions, Reading Comprehension, Water Cycles and More.  Take a quick look at a few samples of innovation at work.  Future plans include sharing the books in the ibooks store. 

We publish our office newsletter in a variety of places to help you stay up to date.
