Textbooks… ah… textbooks

Textbooks are very expensive. They just are. We are seeing the publishing industry morphing – still really beginning but with the advent of the Amazon Kindle – especially the new larger version, we have an opportunity. But what are the ramifications?

I, for one, think that the new possibilities are exciting! Even though the Kindle is more expensive, imagine what a motivated teacher could do to liven up the curriculum! The text could morph and especially when information (in some courses) changes constantly, perhaps the Kindle is the way to go.

Found this excellent post: Thinking Stick – Amazon Kindle

What is your opinion?
