As society’s technological skills evolve, so does the mindset of our pupils. In this session we will present a cross curriculum interactive iBook created by students at a Houston ISD school. We will demonstrate how to effectively initiate the project and implement assessments to capture students understanding throughout the projects lifetime. We will also show how this cross curriculum tool reinforces the hybridization of Math, Science, English and art, strengthening the students aptitude and comprehension.
