for six countries. The students were members of Literature Circles and used the Nooks to

read the novels, take notes during reading, assist them during discussions, access online

sources for research and collaboration, record responses to discussion questions, and plan

and organize final products.

Information will also be provided on purchasing and managing content in the school

setting, teaching effective student use of the e-reader features, and using the device for

Composing Digital Games 

This session explores questions related to our capacity to teach and to create digital games.
