MEDEAnet webinar “Multimedia eBook Creation in Schools”, 11 October 2013, 4pm CET
Thanks to the multiple functionalities mobile devices like tablets and smart phones are offering it's becoming more easy to let students develop their own multimedia eBook in class and to let them become their own publisher.
During this one-hour webinar the speakers described what possibilities exist for teachers to let their students easily develop their own learning resources and what you should respect in terms of didactics and techniques when you start to implement eBook creation in your own class.
Andreas Sexauer from the Distance Learning Centre at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany) demonstrated the technical possibilities apps like the creative book builder are offering and how easy new learning material can be developed. Our second speaker, Maurice Florêncio Bonnet from the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Education addressed the question on how teachers can integrate this new media tool in their class from a more didactical perspective compared to “traditional” learning material. This webinar was held in German.
This webinar is aimed at teachers, educators and trainers interested in introducing eBook production in their class.
The webinar was held on 11 October at 4 pm and attended by 25 participants from 4 countries (Germany, Austria, Greece & USA)
