I spent most of today helping AP Literature seniors get started on the “Senior Project” research projects. Before we jumped into the research pathfinder, I kicked off class sharing the news about our new Kindles—what they are (I had one of our new Kindles in hand!), why students might want to check one out, and how we’ll circulate them as well as our Kindle ebook request form.
In one of our morning sessions, Mary, a senior, showed fellow students her own latest generation Kindle that she received as a gift this summer. I was so impressed by how well she articulated how she is using her Kindle (as were her fellow students) that I asked her to share those insights via video, and she graciously agreed to do so. Take a listen to what Mary has to say about her Kindle–as we start to circulate Kindles on Friday (November 12), I am eager to hear our students’ thoughts and reflections on their experiences of using The Unquiet Library’s Kindles.
