Kiddos Love Kindles: Using e-readers with English Language Learners (ELL) and the School Library Media Center

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Students will use the Kindle e-reader in the ELL and regular education classroom.  Students will develop their sense of empowerment of their owning learning through input on book title selections, choosing Kindle tools that will best serve their needs and preferences, and having successful learning experiences.  In addition to current services, students will meet with the Library/Media teacher one day a week.  This meeting will be used to read as a group, discuss stories, e-reader technology, and search for the next great read via purchase or public library lending of e-books (Overdrive).  In addition it will allow for the “teachable moment” as it pertains to reading and technology.
