where educators come to learn from one another
I am really excited with my new Kindle Paperwhite provided so generously from eBook Educators Group. The Kindles we got for our school in the past were the old ones with keyboards, but this is a whole new experience. My thought is to try it out myself over the next few weeks, and then see if it would work for our school to invest in Kindle Paperwhites for student checkout. My experience with Kindles before in middle school before was not very positive. The students were just not mature enough, it seemed, to take care of them. All but one ended up damaged. Maybe with more instruction the students will take better care of the Kindles. It could be worth it to try again. Hope springs eternal.
