The idea of a worksheet or notebook making its way into the digital domain isn’t new. The concept is worth-revisiting, however, when we consider what’s possible with an app like Numbers for Mac and for iPad.
Numbers is Apple’s spreadsheet app, but in the following video, you’ll find that it doesn’t work like, or even look like, a familiar tool like Excel.
Numbers puts its tabs/sheets along the top of the workbook; in a digital workbook like the one we look at in the video, these are steps in the lesson. Each page can go down and to the left, filling up as much space as you need.
Then students can go over to the next sheet to continue the lesson.
Numbers documents can include video clips, images, clip art, and more–and it’s easily manipulated, just like in Keynote.
