    Hi, Rabbi Cohen! I attended your session on the Invisible iPad at the Boston iPad Summit. I was looking back through my notes and the website and tried to access your presentation. It wouldn’t load for me, and I was wondering if you’d share it with me directly. I really enjoyed your session and am thinking about how to put together a book project for my upcoming unit on Shakespeare.
    Thanks so much.

  2. Megan-

    I am glad you enjoyed my session in Boston. I have updated my slidedeck section with those slides. I will be publishing a short book on using digital publications to support student facilitation in the iBook store. Please connect via Twitter.
