Emerging eBook Technologies into CCLS

Introduction to cloud based eBook platforms, eReaders and mobile apps will be included. Participants will explore inquiry based learning, informational texts and literary texts. Concepts such as mobile learning, BYOD (bring your own device) and reading for pleasure will be discussed with ideas of how they would help with the teaching and learning process. The culminating activity will be to create lesson plans using eBooks.
