"I have 6 Kindles up and running, and all I have done is to add a password to the internet connection that the student does not know.  This seems to work as far as I can tell - when I tried to get around it I couldn't, and so far no…"

Student use

Hi - I have a couple of very different questions both relating to student use. I am at the point where  I am about to add titles to the Kindles. How have people handled the prevention of kids ordering items?  Did you de-register the kindles when you placed them in students' hands after the books were downloaded?  Do you let your students take the Kindles home or do they use them only in school? Did you build up to out-of-school use and just ~kaboom ~ went ahead with it? Thanks for any…See More

Paying for Kindle ebooks

Can schools with accounts with Amazon use POs to pay for ebooks for the Kindles?  Do you have to set up a credit card to order books?  Any help would be appreciated as my Kindles (6) are on their way. Thanks

Melinda, welcome to the group! Are you investigating the use of ereaders at your school, or do you have a pilot in place already? (Please upload a profile photo--go to settings under your name on the right and the option to upload is right at the top!).
