where educators come to learn from one another
Has anyone tried a class project in which the students and/or the teacher creates content, converts the content to a Kindle format and uploads it to a Kindle device?
Sounds like a great opportunity for students to learn the process and get more familiar with the Kindle.
Going a step further, our library is thinking of using Overdrive's "upload your own materials" function to create a custom collection. Students can then read the content on a platform of their choice (Kindle / Kindle for iPad / iBooks / any Android EPUB reader...anything!).
I can't find a non-marketese, plain English description of this service, but hopefully Overdrive's own FAQ will suffice.
I am a reporter working for the French TV M6, located in Paris.
My program, Capital, is the French leading economic program and reaches an audience of 4 million people, on Sunday evening, prime time.
We are currently working on a 25 minutes story on the e-readers and the Kindle.
We are planning to come to the East Coast in early february (LA and Seattle mainly) .
We thought it would be great to show how the Kindle can be used in classrooms in the United States.
I was wondering if you could help me find students that actually use the Kindle in the classrooms and for scholar work.
We would love to come film those classes for a couple of hours to fully understand how the Kindle can be used in schools.
I know that the american schools and universities are very much involved in the use of digital technologies so it might be interesting to show it to the French students, where e-readers are slowly starting.
Thank you so much for your help,
M6 – CAPITAL
