"I would focus on the idea that they represent a differentiation strategy that promotes independent reading through effective use of the features of the device you have chosen.  A demo of the device might help since many people have yet to…"

"I see textbooks for teachers but not on the level I need (middle school ) in Amazon. Maybe I am not looking in the right places? I checked both textbooks and science. Thanks."

"I am studying the features of the Kindle used by students when used as assistive technology --with students with a diagnosed reading disability. It sounds like we are at the same stage in the dissertation development journey."

"Limited use of the Kindle for literature study in the 5th grade has yielded positive results.  Students report they are able to listen to the text while following along multiple times aiding in comprehension."

"The iPad has so many distracting features that I think students would be swayed to pursue non academic or non productive activities when reading is needed.  The Kindle is focused on the reading--Have you seen the many features of the iPad…"

Kindle in the Classroom

A place to discuss the Kindle and how students are likely to use it. Will they read more? Will the device hold up or break easily? Will students find enough to read? Please share your thoughts and observations.

Suzanne,

I am making the finishing revisions on my proposal and hope to defend in the next month. I am using the Kindle in a third grade classroom for independent reading. I am interested in the impact on reluctant readers' reading behaviors. I'm interested in hearing about your study!

It would be great if you were willing to share your methodology and outcomes with the group here! I will personally be interested in following your study. I have written an research brief on the impact of text size on the reading of students termed "dyslexic" (a hopelessly broad term, I know), and I believe that the value of digital text and digital reading platforms for students who struggle for any reason with reading will prove to be high. How many Kindles will you be working with?

Hi Suzanne, and welcome! Are you thinking of some ways to use the Kindle at Lorenzo ES???
