Kindles, Nooks and iPads, Oh My! Implementing eReaders into your library program is about more than just jumping on the latest technological bandwagon or attempting to reinvent your library in order to stay relevant. It’s about good practice. Join Buffy Hamilton and Jennifer LaGarde as they discuss how eReaders have helped them provide students with a) access to the most up to date titles, b) the unique ability to efficiently link works of fiction with nonfiction resources and, c) the opportunity to interact with texts in ways that are simply not possible with traditional, library owned, books – all in an environment that both appeals to and enhances their skills as 21st century learners.

My slidedeck for the webinar will be posted to the webinar wiki Monday evening after the webinar; you will also be able to access the webinar archives from the session page if you cannot attend the live session.

  2. Hi Buffy – I could not attend the webinar as we are on GMT+2, is there any chance I could access the slidedeck and webinar archive? – I have clicked on the ‘session page’ link but get an error message. We have 6 Kindles in our library, and while the students ( and teachers!) are enjoying reading books ON them, I just know there is loads more we could be doing – would love to hear your creative ideas in the webinar! THanks , Kind regards, Gaynor Moore (Johannesburg, SA)
