"One Best Thing": expert guides to implement modern teaching and learning in your classroom

Apple distinguished educators from the 2013 cohort have produced this collection of 102 multi-touch books which highlight best practices, interesting projects and use of technology in the classroom. These are available for free in iBooks.
Apple describes One Best Thing as:
A collection of books, created by Apple Distinguished Educators (ADEs), that demonstrate the use of Apple technologies to transform teaching and learning. Each One Best Thing book shares a unit, a lesson, or a best practice and is designed to help another educator implement a successful practice. It’s a professional learning idea championed by an educator—in word and action—that others can look to for ideas and tips on how to replicate.
In Apple's words, One Best Thing invites you to:
Discover innovative classroom strategies and activities in these Multi-Touch books by Apple Distinguished Educators. Each guide in the One Best Thing collection highlights a specific use of Apple products, apps, and other content to transform teaching and learning. From effective assessment practices to exciting student projects, this professional learning series – devised by outstanding educators – provides practical tips and a lot of inspiration.

The books are grouped into various caregories and work on macbooks and ipads:
  • Language Arts
  • Mathematics and Science
  • Content Creation in the Classroom
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Art, Music and Media Arts
  • Implementing a Digital Classroom
