Electronic devices such as iPads, Kindles, and Nooks are finding a place in classrooms while heavy books are finding their way out. Some schools have done the calculations and learned that incorporating these into the classroom will be less expensive for the long term. Their big screens are user friendly, the touch screen provides an interactive experience, apps enhance learning, and software updates make the device constantly feel like new, regardless of when it was purchased. Reports related to students' learning and test scores show higher scores, and at the same time, the classroom atmosphere is left unchanged and devices give teachers flexibility. Their popularity has increased, and combining them with online sources makes them a great resource and learning tool for all students. Other benefits besides having an entire library in your lap are reducing photocopying, decreasing the weight of backpacks by the pounds, and saving school districts money from buying textbooks. Educational benefits students' will receive include a text-to-speech feature, adjusting the font to their preference, getting students motivated to read, the ability to highlight and take notes while reading, to later share with others, and looking up words that are unfamiliar. Introducing these electronic reading devices into the classroom will be a strong step in a bright educational direction. From this movement, our students of today will become our shining future of tomorrow.
