Today I had the opportunity to learn more about my new NookColors and how to use them effectively in school. Jen Malphy is doing an excellent job teaching all about e-readers. It was really helpful and I finally got a lot of questions answered. She has a ton of great resources on her ereadersintheclassroom wiki.
I was not really sure if I would enjoy reading this way, but I am definitely getting used to it. One night awhile back I needed to sit waiting alone for a long time and I looked all over my car for a book. I figured I was out of luck, but suddenly realized I had about 40 books in my backseat in the Nook. Fabulous "Duh!" moment. So far I have read several picture books and two full length novels and it is starting to feel natural to hold this funny device. I don't really think I will ever completely lose my love for paper books, but I am enjoying the e-readers and really look forward to using them with my students. I think they will love reading on them and creating books to put on them. I can't wait to get started!
