    Thank you for taking part in the poll: Which handheld device would work best in the K-12 classroom? Kindle leads the way, catching 6/15 votes, and discussion on this topic shows that price and ease of use are two of the most attractive features, while on-line tools added to the latest version, Kindle Fire, make […]

    I know, it doesn’t seem fair, but it is what it is. The ipad, right now, is the main game in town (wow – I just can’t stop with the game references). Why? It has the e-reader plus more. I am a recent user of an ipad 2, and a veteran user of a Kobo. […]

      Hey Emily,
      Very interesting post! I currently have a kobo, although I am very interested in upgrading to the one and only “Ipad”! I think your title is dead on…Ipads are the number one device that can virtually do everything! I really don’t think others compare, unless you are only interested in reading. Then I would have to compare the features of the ereaders more specifically.

      Hi Emily,
      It would be a great thing to have school boards have their own ebook stores or library and students can come with their own ereaders (possessing all these features you have mentioned in the last paragraph) to access whatever text in class and study and discuss together, enabling collaboration in class with the ereaders. What a wonderful world of ereading 🙂

    Have eBooks enhanced your experience with reading? I graduated from university 2 years ago, and like many have stated, we read so many papers, articles, books and textbooks during these years that reading for “joy” no longer had a place in my life. Every time I would sit down to read I would remember something […]

      I too have a hard time reading. I get bored and sometines I just cannot focus. Preparing for this presentation have opened my eyes to the benefits of ereading. Right now I was researching e-readers to buy one as soon as possibe. I am also thinking of purchasing electronic versions of the textbooks I use for my classes. E-books may make my life so much easier.

      Hi Jenaca,

      That’s encouraging to find that I am not the only one that has lost my desire to pleasure-read. I have never really taken a break from being a student and find that I struggle quite a bit to focus (especially when the internet is readily available) on a book. There is always something more important to be doing it seems! I will give eReaders another shot in that it might help me re-‘Kindle’ my reading for fun (groan, poor pun).

      Funny Kris! I too have lost the desire to read – until I go on vacation and pick up another book and then I have to read it until it is done. This week’s presentation has left me again wondering if I should go out and buy an ipad or ereader. Every time I go to the store to look at one, I walk away wondering if it really is a good purchase. If more of the texts and reading that we did in class were available online, I think that would push me into obtaining one sooner.
