Education Meets Digital

With the interactive capabilities of ebooks and apps, how are publishers and developers creating new opportunities for education? What new innovations are emerging in the edutainment market, and how are they accommodating new technologies as they develop their products? What type of interaction is most effective to capture and maintain the interest of their target audience, and how do new apps and ebooks grow with their readers? Developers explore these questions as they talk about new systems and products that are combining the classroom with technology.
