Crunching the Numbers: iPads vs. Textbooks | OnlineTeachingDegree.com | eLearning Topics | Scoop.it

The classroom has traditionally been a place of by-the-books learning: you sharpen your pencil, you write math formulas on a paper, you turn that paper in for a grade. In fact, the smell and feel of paper has been central to the learning experience for as long as schools have been established. Times are changing, however, and education is now feeling the pressure of widespread technological proliferation heralded by companies like Apple and Microsoft.

7 Things You Should Know About E-Books | EDUCAUSE

E-books offer new ways for readers to interact with content.

7 Things You Should Know About E-Readers | EDUCAUSE

E-readers are portable, low-power, high-resolution devices that display digital versions of written material from books, magazines, newspapers, and other printed sources. They typically use e-ink, a display technology designed to simulate printed paper that offers similar resolution as newsprint and, relative to an LCD screen, eliminates glare and reduces eyestrain. Digital texts can be updated easily and often include advanced features such as annotation, hyperlinking, cross-linking, saved views, interactive quizzes for individual study, analyses, and shared commentary. E-readers are changing the economics of text-based intellectual property, including educational materials, and a move to digital texts would have broad implications both for the traditional campus bookstore and for an institution’s library.
