A readable book online from Shantytown

Last week our teacher [Miss Cheeseman] spent three days in the South Island in a place called Hokitika. She showed some teachers some cool things to do in the classroom with the iPads and then spent two days at Shantytown working with children at a Kids Conference. Check out this cool eBook created on an iPad by one of the students. They took their own photos too. You can turn the pages of the book at the bottom corners.

  3. No everyone from the class hasn't been there...it's too far away from Auckland. They hope to go soon though.
