I wonder how they deal with their devises getting damaged. Our school does not allow the students to bring their own devises and laptops are only allowed to be checked out as a class.

It was a good presentation on how her school introduced eBooks. I was hoping for more information on why she used MackonVia and what its format is like. The presentation seems a little dated. Perhaps, more apps and tools that could be added to this presentation.

Excellent presentation! I've been using eBooks (love the USA titles) for several years. I haven't tried the Mackin platform yet. Sounds like a good one to investigate! The platform I'm currently using is proprietary to one company's books. Thanks for such great info

The presenter made some great points. First, you have to support and educate yourself about your school, county, or state initiatives in order to help your students become successful. Second, always involve parents and the community. It shows that you care on a larger scale, and it creates open lines of communication and respect. Finally, it may take more time to implement and use these resources and strategies in the beginning, but the students will love it, and that is what's important! Thanks for sharing!
