E105: Creating Guidelines for Using Ebooks in the Classroom

4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Faith Ward, Lower Division Librarian, Garrison Forest School

Faculty at Garrison Forest School are running a pilot ebook program for the 2014-2015 academic year. Prior to launch, the presenter Faith Ward initiated research into what e-reading was accomplishing and how students were reading dig- itally for class and homework assignments on the campus. She and other school faculty compiled a comprehensive review of the research literature on e-reading, surveyed students’ e-reading habits, provided instruction for faculty using and selecting digital texts, and observed the pros and cons of using these texts. From their observations and experiences, they have prepared guidelines for all teachers as to how to use digital books with students, ensuring success. Ward shares an overview of this process in her presentation.
