The School of Education, NUI Galway recently launched an iBook 'The Story of 1916' by staff member Seán O'Grádaigh (@SeanOGraTek).

It was launched by Dr Jim Browne, President of NUI Galway and the Ireland 2016 team (@ireland2016) with pupils and staff of Scoil Chroí Íosa, Newcastle Road, Galway.

This multi-touch book tells the story of the 1916 Rising in Dublin.  It is packed with videos, interactivity and multimedia to engage readers with an authentic learning experience, which brings this period of Irish history to life.  It was built as part of Ireland’s Centenary Programme.
