Has anyone got ereaders at their school
Has anyone elses school purchased ereaders? If so can you recommend which one works best in a school environment.
I persoanlly own a Kindle, which is brilliant but i havent seen anywhere were you can enter proxy server settings so downloading books wirelessly wouldn't be an option. However this could be a good thing as it means that pupils cant download books to the device whilst they're loaning it.
The kindle seems like a sturdy device but i'm not sure if it would be up to the demands that pupils can put them them through. Has any one else got experience with any other ereaders that they may think is more suitable to cope with the demands of a classroom.
Also if we had 20 ereaders would we have to buy 20 copies of each book then, and if a device is broken or lost would we then have to repurchase all the books that were held on the device or can the books be backed up on line somewhere.
