With them, you can carry a stack of books in your hand (on your tablet), saving trees-worth of paper. eReaders are not only a techy alternative, but an environmental one as well!! Especially if your kids eat books for breakfast like mine!
As youngsters are embarking on the eReader route, teachers are finding them to be a classroom treasure as well. The EPIC! app is one of my latest #EdTech discoveries that puts an endless number of books in your child or student's hands. My favorite feature is that they have opened up their entire library for free to educators. Yet, even at the parent subscription of $4.99 per month, it's still a great economic deal for book lovers! Check out my screencast movie below to help you learn just how epic the EPIC! app is for Educators.
