A great way to get into using ebooks is to start with some of the free varieties. Ebook readers offer all kinds of accessibility benefits - as well as barriers - and trialling with free books is a good way to experiment with what works for you or your learners.

Interactive Sesame Street, Nat Geo TV come to Microsoft Kinect...

The skinny: For decades, educational video games have failed to get a rise out of kids and parents; that 1985’s The Oregon Trail is still the genre’s most well-known is telling. You could say that Microsoft aims to shake that perception with its two newest apps for the Xbox 360, Kinect Sesame Street TV and Kinect Nat Geo TV, but Microsoft has said proudly that these are not games. Instead, the shows combine pre-recorded videos with Kinect’s motion and voice sensors, and the results are two entirely different tacks on adding interactivity to standard TV series.
