We’re proud to announce the newest issue of the Edudemic Magazine has been released! If you’re one of our subscribers, you already have access to the issue so just fire up the app and start reading. If you’re not a subscriber but interested in education, technology, gamification of education, infographics, and more… grab the March issue today!
It’s by far our biggest issue to date. At more than 70 pages, it’s chock-full of unique articles and content that you won’t find anywhere else. Edudemic Magazine features fresh and original content written exclusively for the magazine, and designed to leverage the interactive capability of the iPad, something we’re evolving every month. This is not a simple “Edudemic app” of our blog posts, but a full-featured, interactive 21st century magazine with a growing content catalogue, and a full-time staff developing content. We took great care to make it something you can be excited to read, and find useful in the classroom.
The March issue features an all-new layout thanks to user feedback, improved readability, interactive graphics, in-depth articles, and a series of discussions on the gamification of education. Everything from what ‘gamification’ is, all the way to how to implement it.
