Presentation Description

As students transition to reading academic texts on screens rather than on paper, faculty and librarians prepare to support their digital reading, writing, and research. This presentation will describe the results of a research project at the University of Georgia, where Amazon’s Kindle 2.0 was used as an integral part of the classroom experience for students in an upper-level English class. Discussion will include the effects of the Kindle on students’ reading and writing processes as well as how it affected pedagogy.
