PBS has released a series of free interactive digital books for teachers.
The series covers a number of topics including math, science, foreign language and holidays. The titles includes lesson plans and links to related games.
“Our top priority is making the lives of educators easier. With the launch of our first series of iBooks, we are furthering our commitment to producing high-quality, educational resources that drive classroom performance,” stated Alicia Levi, Vice President, PBS Education. “Research shows that PBS LearningMedia content positively impacts student achievement when integrated into existing classroom curriculum. This new series of iBooks will provide students with a fresh perspective on the topics covered and provide educators with a new and engaging way to teach them.”
The first four titles are already on iTunes, with more to follow.
