If you have not discovered our E Library now is the time to teach your students how to read an e book on an e reader. We have several e readers for loan from our library in Kelowna, the Kobo ( just does e reading) and the Sony (has audio and e reading capability). To find out more how to use the e library contact Pippa, and she will walk you through the process.
Here are some of the positive stats around e readers and younger students!
2. The Kobo has a build in dictionary, that lets you highlight and find definitions for tricky words.
4. E Books can also be read on computers, and cell phones have become a very popular way to be read.
5. 61% of E Book readers prefer to borrow books from a library according to the PewInternet study.
6. E books tend to make the process of loaning a book from a library much faster, and does not require a trip to the library.
7. Borrowing an E Book is easy, once you are a registered user, and know how to use your e reader.
8. Interactive E Books like the books coming out from Living Books via Broderbond are perfect for students who need to engage, and manipulate more with a book, although the literacy engagement for students in general, is to be found more with traditional E books.
9. The Kobo Glo has a built in light similar to the elluminated iPad, but less intrusive on the eye.
10. The Kobo and Sony e readers are light and easy to hold in one hand.
Enjoy the read-a-thon, and a new reading experience.
