Interesting Results from the WorldReader e-Reader Pilot in Ghana | ICTWorks - 1 views

  •  
    Very interesting article. "iREAD (Impact on Reading of E-Readers And Digital content) Ghana Pilot Study" Another example showing us the traditional standardized test doesnt seem to be a suitable type of assessment here. But in addition to that there are many interesting findings related to IT literacy, benefits of the teachers and increased access to learning materials. (never really thought a simple hardware such as e-reader itself will be this 'transformational' to certain countries across the world)

    Here's video examples of some of the MIND Institute's games... I'm not sure how the reveal of locations behind the iPad really come into play... SURELY they could have come up with more functional examples that relate content to real life?

    Can you think of more functional & relative locations to showcase?

Off the Shelf, Onto the Laptop - Libraries Try Digital Books - NYTimes.com - 0 views

  •  
    Interesting article about libraries going digital, talking about how this actually functions in libraries (Boston Public Library being one) and addressing concerns about publishers' rights. I'm sad that at this point nobody really seems to care about the experience of reading a real book with actual pages. What a loss if we ditch physical books altogether.
