The Book and I: How the iPad has changed my reading life - TUAW

The Book and I: How the iPad has changed my reading life - TUAW | YA Books | Scoop.it

"Last week, I picked up a copy of The Long Earthby Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter at the library. The book was sitting there on the shelf. I had heard some reasonably good buzz about it. So when it caught my eye, I did something I haven't done in a while. I checked out a dead-tree version. I also did something I had never done before. As I was reading the book, I stumbled across an unfamiliar word and, rather hilariously, ended up tapping the printed page until it finally occurred to me that the book wasn't going to offer me built-in dictionary and Wikipedia access."

This is exactly the kind of thing David Lankes talks about when he talks about the shifting role of the library/librarian. The engagement is there because students are generating knowledge not just consuming it. How could this kind of project be replicated at your school?
