Hi, I just had a grant funded for four Kindles through DonorsChoose.org and have two more up for funding through the same source. I wrote a paper for the National Lab Day Project and have tried to find current research or protocol on using Kinldes with elementary and specialneeds kids. Since there is little to no research I decided to get supervisors and volunteers from my district to help me write a protocol. I have a person from Nasa that is helping via the internet and some interest from local universitites. Would you be willing to work as an advisor via the internet with my project? You would be credited on my site. I would appreciate the access to any studies available.
