News on eBooks in Education

Here are a few articles that I have been reading about ebooks in education, reading, and the development in ebook readers and tablets.

The first one is from the Huffington Post -
10 Radical Ideas for Getting Kids to Read. You may not agree with all of them but they will make you think.

Next,
EBook Stampede, about the consideration of ebooks in Florida education from the view of the state government.

This title will give you a pretty good idea of the content of the next article.
Canadian company releasing education tablet, mySpark, targeted at students.

And one more article on a tablet aimed at the education market.
