FOLKS–You may have missed it, but Apple recently introduced the concept of e-books. They said that the plan to introduce e-books, and that no e-book will cost more than $16. They’re also making their e-book development environment open to people who want to write and publish e-books. So Apple has just legitimized this embryonic business. And then the FCC head, in a joint press conference with the Secretary of Education, said that they would begin to beat the drum for the adoption of e-books by schools.
Congratulations, technology directors! Now go out and figure out two things: how to run a successful one-to-one program or BYOD program, and how to upgrade your network to support video-happy e-books in the hands of every one of your students. You have about two years to figure it out.
