The concept of this design was to focus on the idea that students need to visualize when they read and learn, as a part of differentiated instruction. Imagine being able to see the ebook pages turn and being able to follow the words as they are read by students, teachers, or the interactive floor sound. There is an immediate impact on learning and grasping vocabulary and comprehension. The screen incorporates technology and applications to allow students to comprehend and interact in new and creative ways. The screen works hand-in-hand with the iPad and complimenting applications, Airplay, and an Apple TV to make the whole experience engaging. The idea that books can come to life right in front of the students, and that applications, such as Google Earth can be easily utilized for a variety of learning techniques, make the possibilities of this concept endless.
