A Magazine Is An IPad That Doesn't Work

Technology codes our minds, changes our OS. Apple products have done this extensively. The video shows how magazines are now useless and impossible to understand, for digital natives.

Welcome to Lit2Go ETC

Welcome to Lit2Go ETC | k12ebooks | Scoop.it

Lit2Go is a free online collection of stories and poems in Mp3 (audiobook) format. An abstract, citation, playing time, and word count are given for each of the passages. Many of the passages also have a related reading strategy identified. Each reading passage can also be downloaded as a PDF and printed for use as a read-along or as supplemental reading material for your classroom.   In the Lit2Go Flesch-Kincaid grade level index, you will see novels and similar kinds of books listed by the grade level of the book as a whole, while short stories and essays that are included in anthologies are listed individually. All passage pages report the Flesch-Kincaid level for the individual passage, not the book average.
