An infographic embellished with a crisp and distinctive Red Delicious apple caught my eye last week: Can Apple Do It Again?
In this visual synopsis, WorldWideLearn, one of the world’s leading online directories of education assesses whether Apple’s iBooks will triumph in the world of literature and learning.
In a digital age, Apple’s recent release of the iBook has ushered in a change, but, as of yet, nothing revolutionary. Still, they say change doesn’t happen over night. Some key numbers to notice:
- More than 600 school districts around the United States are issuing iPads to their students in specific classes.
- Over 11 million iPads have been sold.
- Since 2010, the percentage of those between the ages of 18 and 29 owning a tablet computer has increased three-fold.
We here at Bon anticipate the rise of iBooks and digital e-readers. That’s why over the last several months we’ve been tapping, swiping and writing away to bring you our new iBook series that will take students on a global excursion.
