What are the copyright issues in lending Kindles and ebooks to our students?

What are the copyright issues in lending Kindles and ebooks to our students? | Digital Literacy Connections | Scoop.it

"Lending Kindles preloaded with third party content, such as an ebook currently in copyright, via a library or learning centre, would breach the current stated Kindle terms and conditions of use as far as UK users are concerned. The Kindle terms and conditions state that the digital content is for personal use only and in terms of the accepted definition of personal use in UK copyright law, it is unlikely that this extends to the personal use of one e-book (purchased by an institution as account holder) by a large group of learners."

College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning | Digital Literacy Connections | Scoop.it

"Looking closer at readership of digital books, here are some of the findings:
Seven in 10 college students (70%) have read digital textbooks, compared to 62% a year ago.
Six in 10 high school seniors (58%) have read digital textbooks, compared to 41% a year ago.
Among those students who had previously read a digital textbook, eight in 10 college students (81%) and two-thirds of high school seniors (66%) have read a digital textbook this school year (since September 2011).
Almost six in 10 college students prefer a digital format when reading books for fun (57%) or textbooks for class (58%), while one-third say that they prefer print. This trend can be seen among high school seniors as well, and is mostly driven by an increase in the preference to use tablets for reading.
Other studies have found that e-textbooks still face several obstacles to overcome before digital textbook distribution models become mainstream on college campuses..."

Literacy vs. Digital Literacy

Literacy vs. Digital Literacy | Digital Literacy Connections | Scoop.it

I would argue that core literacy skills ... have not changed, however the tool set may have. If by digital literacy we’re referring to the use of technology ... If we define a separate literacy set for everything we effectively dilute the importance of our existing definition. Lots of people have invested a lot of time and energy into our existing definition and, I believe, it holds up well, even in an ever-changing digital landscape.

Bridging the digital divide | VOICE | Digital Literacy Connections | Scoop.it

There is a growing recognition among health and community service workers that lack of IT access is the new marker of social disadvantage. In response, significant effort is being expended to bridge the digital divide between people who have ready access to computers and a working knowledge of how to use them, and those who don’t.
