I have fallen in love with my Kindle Reader for iPad. I tried it out on the iPhone, and the form factor was a bit small. But after seeing my colleague’s Kindle, I knew I had to get one. However, once the iPad launched, seeing the Kindle Reader on it made me fall in love with the concept of e-reading.
Through Whispersync, no matter the device you are on, the highlights and bookmarks you make appear on the device. I have been reading several books on the Kindle Reader and have found it to be very valuable for putting together lectures and refer back to material.
The e-reader brings access to people everywhere to reading material and learning material that once required visiting a library or spending 100’s of dollars on expensive books and reference material. Now, downloading a book costs less, and many textbooks makers are offering e-versions that can be used on devices that cost less and give the learner much more flexibility.
If you’d like to learn more about the iPad for education, contact me for a conference call/webinar or visit me in May or June on a Wednesday in the Crossgates Mall Apple Store, where I will be conducting some info sessions and workshops on Macs for Business and Education.
