MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. -- A learning project has turned into a tool you can use to explore Georgia and learn about the state's science and history from your living room.

After going through a teaching fellowship with Apple, Georgia College and State University professor Chris Greer was challenged to find a way to use technology to help share information about some parts of his community.

He went a step further and created a digital textbook that highlights Georgia State Parks to teach people about science and history.

"Anybody else that just wants to learn more about the state, the citizens of Georgia or people throughout the United States or even around the world can download this book and learn quite a bit and see some beautiful places that we have here in Georgia," Greer said.

Greer said the idea is to frame science and history lessons using the backdrop of Georgia's state park system. He spent months visiting parks from the coast to the mountains to get photos and videos to put the book together.
