Can e-readers enhance classroom learning?

The San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD) will evaluate the effectiveness of electronic devices in the classroom. Fox Tech High School will pilot use of the Kindle Fire readers in one advanced placement biology class. According to a press release issued by the district, 22 students were selected to receive the district-issued devices.

The ereaders are equipped with an electronic version of the classroom text, software for notetaking, and various other district-approved apps to make instruction interactive. The district will collect student and teacher feedback to determine the effectiveness of the device for use in other SAISD classrooms.
