Come see us in room A212 for a discussion on how to use eReaders in the classroom.

Most of us have them...

eReaders -- Kindle, Nook, Kobo, whatever. But have we thought about using this awesome tool in the classroom? We are going to share with you a few ways these can be incorporated into ANY classroom (not just literature or social studies)!

See how you can incorporate eReaders and eBooks into YOUR classroom by visiting our blog. We will keep this blog updated to keep you supported and informed.

Struggling & Reluctant Readers

Getting our struggling and reluctant readers to read -- that's what it's all about, right?

What if eBooks and eReaders intrigue your students enough to spark them to read. It's worth a try.

eReaders and eBooks offer accessibility features that will help some students be less self-conscious about exceptionalities. eReaders offer accommodations such as text-to-speech, contrast controls, and large print to name a few.
