I belive that the only way the public school system can survive is to adopt an e-reader system. My company has been working on safe apps for readers and finding readers for under $50.00. It can not work with a $150.00 reader. If you want info for your school look up teaching2020.com I am willing to help your school anyway I can. I really think it is the future of education and time to get rid of expensive textbooks.

This is my first post and it's probably a selfish one. My interest is to find out which high schools and colleges are using or planning to use digital materials to help their students. I'm a writer with a couple of books on writing - one on writing essays and term papers and one for business on writing proposals and reports. Both books have been well received. I'm just about to release the 4th edition of my book on essays and term papers prior to developing a print edition. My purpose with this book is a communication one - i.e. how can I help students get across what they want to say more easily and effectively. I sense that in Ebook form it will be available to a far broader range of high school and college students - and very reasonably priced. I expect the book to be available on the Kindle and IPad and through aggregators like Smashwords to Sony, Nook, Kobo and others. I will be pleased to provide more information if requested - and is there a way I can help you?

I am from a high school in Kansas.  We have purchased some Kindles, but now after months of discussion and research, district level administration has concerns about the WiFi issue.  How are you addressing this issue where students can turn the WiFi on and access material outside of the building and the school is liable?

I never thought about copyright laws. I thought that purchasing the device and purchasing the e-books allows you freedom within the device's capabilities.

I own a Kindle for personal use and a Nook for classroom use. I am finding it difficult to navigate an account for the Nook because it needs to be tied to a charge account and the school does not have a charge account and will not allow gift cards. I am working on it.

I want to order and start using ereaders in my LMC but am wondering which one everyone would recommend.  I also want to make sure we are staying within the copyright.  What does everyone think?

Kaplan has all of their SAT and AP prep books free until the 16th! Loaded them on on our Early College set for later in the spring.
