Abstract: Digital technologies are transforming our most basic means of literacy – the book. These technologies now make it possible for students to revise existing texts and produce electronic books. E-books allow students to incorporate text, still images, audio and video and show and modify the books using the iPad. This presentation will focus on the literacy implications of student-produced e-books. In addition, the presentation will include the production process for creating e-books.
