I am just starting out as a KCP teacher, so my kids are just getting started on their Kindles. However, it has been great to see how quickly they’ve latched on and gotten excited about their new devices. They are reading during down time in classes, and I am particularly excited to see a lot of my students benefiting from the features that Kindles offer. My students have IEPs (individualized education programs) and can have challenges in reading. Features such as the dictionary feature as well as audiobooks really augment students’ ability in and enjoyment of reading.
Ed. Note: Brittany is a KCP teacher in Oakland.
