To encourage my students to read electronically on various devices in addition to paperback and hardcover books.
Two years ago, my classes jumped into the ebook frenzy and started reading on Kobo Classic Readers. Both secondary 1 and 2 Enriched English levels have enjoyed this experience. There have been mixed reviews at times and generally, the students have been up for the challenge. The assignments we do are richer and more developed when using this technology, much in part to the enthusiasm for trying something new.
This video tutorial will help you with installing your Kobobooks application on to your chosen device.
