The folks at Apple have this week shown off their new Textbooks category in their iPad and iPhone-based iBookstore, showing how interactive teaching can be done in a brand new way and for a much less expensive price: $14.99 or less.

iBooks 2 revealed with Textbooks

iBooks 2 revealed with Textbooks

Building on the very central subject of the education event in NYC this week in the iPad, Apple spoke of the second generation of iBooks, that being iBooks 2. This application will tie Apple's already portable, durable, interactive, searchable, and current iPad to the "great content" of the textbook, the textbook having none of the features the iPad can offer to the next generation of students. What iBooks 2 offers the student is much more than just pages - multitouch gestures, 3D models, and interactive experiences galore will bring kids directly into the content they're working with.

I don't pretend to have any inside lines with Apple, nor do I have any tip that should lead you believe that I'm quoting someone else - instead what you're about to read is completely built on my own experience with Apple's past and how I and my former and current student colleagues interact with books. Apple will not, if my mind is cranking out right and telling me the right answers, be revealing a new device, but a new environment where students and colleges can connect to writers in a way that's been possible but not entirely realistic up until now.
