A 'Kindle' In My Classroom! What do you think?

I just finished ordering my first ever Kindle, and I cannot tell you how excited I am. For the past couple of days I have been mesmerized by the possibilities the Kindle offers to me and my classroom.

I was thrilled to find out that my school district would pay for the purchase of the novels I teach on a yearly basis. In fact, my superintendent has suggested we write a technology grant to pilot a set in my classroom next year.

Until I get it, I cannot tell you if I love, love it or not. So I am wondering . . . what do you all think?

  1. I've never used them, so I'm not sure, but I love the idea! Let us know if that grant works out! :)

  2. My two teenagers LOVE my kindle. I have purchased their required readings for HS. They would think their teachers were major 'cool!' I think this is an awesome idea! You will be able to download many of the required readings for free. I was able to find many of the books for their English classrooms for no money.
