Many younger students today prefer interactive digital textbooks to print versions, and have access to iPads in K-12. The Introduction to GIScience textbook project provides you with a collaborative opportunity to engage students by contributing your GIScience content or expertise to a free interactive digital textbook formatted for iBooks on iPad. You do not need an iPad to participate! By exposing high school, community college and first-year university students to the many different facets of GIScience, this highly engaging medium may potentially serve as a springboard into deeper exploration of GIScience academic programs and careers.

The DEMO version is available for download to your iPad today at:
