The Many Benefits of Using iBooks in Education
https://bit.ly/19EIDYW
The Many Benefits of Using iBooks in Education
Apple’s electronic books are an excellent compliment to their tablets and to the needs of education.
With the advent of slim and increasingly affordable electronic devices, the long-accepted burden of a paper-based education may no longer be necessary. In particular, iBooks hold the potential to not only make the educational system more streamlined, but also more exciting and effective. With a ten billion dollar textbook industry firmly in place, changes are sure to be gradual, but the rate at which classrooms are incorporating e-material into the curriculum is on the rise.
So what are the advantages?

Kobos : The E-reader of our choice
http://librarygrits.blogspot.com/2011/11/e-reader-of-our-choice.html
'We have 15 Kobos in our library which we lend to students, I chose kobo as it is supported in HK, they can read a variety of formats and I do not have to purchase through Amazon.' (librarian)
I was of the belief that the school did not need to supply e-readers for our students use as we are a 1:1 laptop school with most of our students having a smart phone of one variety or other, and many having their own e-readers at home. But, I changed my mind after listening to a web cast with Buffy Hamiliton and researched into e-readers and what would meet our specifications if we were to purchase some.

Free Ebooks

Free Ebooks
I’m going to cut through some of the confusion, and show you how to get, keep, and consume free ebooks. It’s a fairly quick skate across the surface though, so you’ll need to do some more work yourself.
Just to clarify, ebooks, for the sake of this discussion, are books which are available electronically, rather than printed on dead trees, and which can be read on an electronic device of some sort. And completely free ebooks, just now, are those which are legitimately available for free. Other options exist. We all know that.

E-book Reader Matrix

E-book Reader Matrix
Much of the renewed enthusiasm for e-books comes from a new generation of e-book reader devices because they use the E Ink technology which has been eagerly awaited, and the feature sets are much richer than devices could offer in the past. This new display technology has the distinct advantage of only using power for page turns, not to maintain a page display.
But most importantly, it provides a crisp, clear image on a larger display screen that rivals print seen in paper books.
