Best practices/Advice

Our English teachers used e-books 3 years ago but now ALL have returned to print only texts. E-books did not work well for literature.Plan in summer. Learn and practice various platforms. Have an organizational method, as you will be using a multitude of passwords. Train the teachers who use the platforms. Amazon whispercast is well worth considering.
commentsI used to have an online spreadsheet for parents with links to Amazon and ebook sites. Our information for each class says whether the students can use an etext. Some classes use free online etexts and suggest a print resource in addition only if the families feel it is necessary to supplement the online for their students.We try to have one print version of each textbook available in the library. Many students still prefer print.Feel free to contact me, Joan Tracy
