E-books R Us?
January 5, 2011 Leave a comment
We here in California have made a startling discovery. We’re out of money. Suddenly, the educator’s fondness for cuddling a warm, bound pile of ink-enhanced cellulose is giving way to open-source texts and ebooks, not to mention a sudden recognition of the environmental impact of all that printing and binding.
We know there have been a number of fantasies in this direction, but the rubber has hit the road in our state. What are readers finding? Searches on ebooks in schools yield a number of library-based experiments around the country, but is there anyone on the verge of making The Great Leap at a district or county level?
