Mobile Education Store is excited to announce that our Crack the Books series of interactive science books was recently profiled in an article about digital textbooks. the author writes about how a properly designed digital textbook can transform a classroom. She writes:
Crack the Books are iPad textbook apps with customizable reading levels and a host of features to take the experience beyond simply reading. Textbooks may never hold the same appeal to teachers or students once they have experienced all that these digital textbooks have to offer.
It’s gratifying to see so many people from around the world begin to understand what we already do – digital books hold the key to bringing our education system into the 21st century. But its not enough to just take a print book and move it to a digital medium, in order for digital books to really improve education, they must take full advantage of everything that tablet computers offer. Crack the Books is the first book series to do this.
Our Crack the Books™ series of digital books currently consists of 3 books, Pines to Vines, Seashores to Sea Floors and Blades. These revolutionary books are designed to improve reading comprehension in all students, from those with special needs to those with academic gifts. They are the first that can be adjusted for reading level without sacrificing curriculum content. Students can experience all the content presented to their classmates, while reading at a level that is appropriate to their ability. Targeting 3rd – 6th grade science and social studies concepts, our iBooks allow for reading level adjustment from 1st to 8th grade within the same book, making it possible for all students in a classroom to access the same curriculum content regardless of their reading ability.
Crack the Books is part of Mobile Education Store’s award winning suite of educational apps. MES has won over 50 app awards and has been named educational developer of the year in both 2011 and 2012.
