Kindles for Title I Classrooms

I am about to implement ten Kindles in our elementary Title I classrooms. These Kindles will be used by both Title I and General Education teachers to work with Title I students. Our teachers are excited about the possibility of having multiple texts available to our students at a moments notice. The fact that we can download texts onto multiple Kindles is very attractive.

eSchool News Leads with Story on Kindle DX

You know that people are paying attention when eSchool News puts a Kindle story on the front page!

Is Kindle the perfect learning appliance?

The devices that we use to access content are getting smaller and smaller. One could make the case that the iPod Touch and the iPhone are in fact small pocket computers, and one wouldn't be far from the truth.
