The folks at Penguin books have been doing some imagineering, inspired by the soon-to-be released iPad:
The imminent launch of the iPad has galvanized our children’s publishing teams to think about how the work they publish can be reinvented for devices where touch and sound and movement can enhance stories and provide a rich engaging experience for children raised as digital natives. The video below doesn’t show real working applications, or even prototypes – more they are imaginings of the things we think we might be able to do and perhaps will be doing. Look out for them in an app store near you soon…
I can’t wait to see what my kids are going to be able to draw on the iPad with Brushes! (I’ll just have to figure out how to get a F2F or virtual teacher for them, since I’m a poor artist and don’t know how to use Brushes well…. yet!)
