No longer can we expect students to care about content simply because we tell them to. They are highly aware of the ubiquitous nature of information and realize it is easily accessible outside the classroom.
The possibilities and the identities of ebooks are still being realized and I doubt we’re even close to understanding their full potentials. The above is my “short list” of what I expect from ebooks now as well as what I bemoan the loss of with my increasing dependence on electronic texts.
My hope as we go into the school year is that we don’t work to integrate technology; it just becomes part of the way that we get work (learning) done.
