The enhanced eBook market is growing daily and teachers and librarians are familiar with the engagement benefits found in the use of an enhanced eBook with students of all ages. Enhanced eBooks can be a fun introduction to a physical or paper book and in schools that have adopted a 1:1 iPad program, they can make literacy even more engaging.
Penguin Books Australia currently has 3 enhanced picture eBooks available in iTunes, all of them with varying levels of interactivity, audio and video content.
