A couple of days ago I saw a Tweet from Matthew Farber about an iBook that his middle school students had created and published. The book that his students created is titled The Corns Visit the 13 Colonies. It’s a piece of collaboratively written historical fiction. The story is about “the Corns” who visit the 13 colonies. Each chapter of the book includes 3D images that readers can rotate.
I always like to see student projects because I almost always learn something new from them. This time I learned about Bookry which provides interactive widgets that you can add to your iBooks.
