Push Pop Press – The Future of the Book

By Debra Bell | August 16, 2011 | Online Education

The future of learning is a topic of great interest to me — just as technology is rapidly reinventing the way we live, I think technology is rapidly reinventing the way we learn. Case in point: Push Pop Press set out to reimagine the book of the future. Here’s a peak inside their first creation:

Don’t get hung-up on the subject matter. Rather, what do you think about the possibilities here? Is this a more powerful learning tool than 20th century textbook?

Unfortunately, Push Pop Press sold their soul to Facebook recently, and no further digital book publishing is planned in their future. But I’m sure other start-up companies will soon be mirroring their reinvention.

What do you think? Do you see ways this kind of presentation of content might be motivating for your kids? Is there a downside?
