Kindles for Education

I bought a Kindle about 6 or 7 months ago. I was settled in my apartment and job for a while and wanted something to do other than watch TV or dink around on the computer, so I went and bought a book. After getting through a few books, I needed to figure something out, because I don’t quite have the room to get a bookcase. The first thing that popped into my head was getting a Kindle.

So far I have been reading just various novels, so I didn’t really get the push for using a Kindle for education. I read my first text that I needed to make notes in. It was extremely handy to highlight passages, and make side notes on the side. For somebody who has difficulty highlighting or writing in the margin, this opens some doors. Unless you cannot operate the small 5-way navigational button.

Seeing that Amazon is releasing a few new models of Kindles, will the accessibility issues be handled? There has already been a lawsuit over the lack of accessibility.

    I am no learning expert, but they could help kids with reading. Kids who have mobility impairments may be able to use the page turning feature better than real pages.
