Connect School Project launches eBooks Pilot in Partnership with Gill & Macmillan Educational Publishers, South Dublin County Council, South Dublin County Library, and St Aidan's Community School, Brookfield, Tallaght.
The eBooks Pilot will see a class of 2nd year Students having their History and Geography Books downloaded in digital format onto their Laptops. No further need to carry print versions of their textbooks!!
The eBooks will integrate with Gill & Macmillan's innovative eTest.ie testing and revision website. It will also be integrated with St Aidan's own Virtual Learning
Friday 24th April 2009 marks another very significant date in the development of the Connect School Project. The Launch of the eBooks Pilot Project took place in the Big Picture (South Dublin County Council's Interactive Exhibition Centre, opposite the last stop of the Luas in Tallaght) and was followed with a demonstration of the County Library's Digital Download Service in County Library.
It is hoped that this innovative initiative will lead to more books becoming available electronically for the Students and Teachers of St Aidan's!!!
