eBook Educators Group
where educators come to learn from one another
The purpose of this group is to discuss and share information about how we are using or planning on using ereaders in the reading classroom.

This group does not have any discussions yet.
I am piloting a Kindle classroom experiment at the independent school in Nashville where I work. I really want to start to play around with the public notes and highlights, so that as a class reads, they can see what their peers and I are highlighting and commenting. I'm really excited about how the discussion starts AS you read, instead of just after. In particular, I would like to play around with highlighting and making a note that has a thought-provoking question on a particular passage in that night's reading. Then that question becomes the jumping point for our discussion the next day. Particularly, I think this will be awesome with symbolism, something we do a lot in our 9th grade English class. I always wish that rather than dissect a symbol post-mortem, they can be nudged to see the symbolism as they are reading it the first time.
I would love your ideas and feedback. You can follow me on this experiment on my blog mykindleclassroom.blogspot.com
