Why Our After-School Book Club Can't Wait to Get Its New E-Readers

Can e-readers engage students in ways print cannot?

"After reading the current research on digital literacy, we felt e-readers could engage our reluctant readers in a way that print has not thus far.  ...  By shifting to a medium that embraces interactivity, the chance that they'll read may independently increase. E-readers, even the basic ones we have purchased, boost the relevancy of reading and shows that the school is trying to speak their language: technology."
