Chalk Talk: The Uses of eReaders
Technological devices can make reading fun. They can especially assist those who are struggling or unmotivated to read, as they are not like a typical book, but something a little different in terms of the delivery of content and text. Nooks, for example, are a great way to inspire children to read. Many apps are at their fingertips, and with the guidance of a teacher, the students can really gain educational insight into their reading.
