Interactive Digital Library
Building an interactive digital library to increase student success. I will use 7″ Kindle Fire tablets to reduce the limitations associated with getting digital content to students in an easy to use format.
These devices would be a direct combat to textbook inadequacies. Instructors and students will be able to take advantage of textbook rental systems, offering an additional cost-cutting option, as well as the ability for instructors to easily utilize their own textbooks in the classroom. We see the latter as a huge option for classroom teachers. Essentially, they would be able to create their own textbooks freely with up-to-date, relevant, and focused topics directly on the digital reader.
We know teachers are already self-publishing content in their classrooms. This would allow teachers to be able to directly and cost-efficiently self-publish to students without the need for large paper copies.
This will also allow students to read books of interest digitally – either through the school’s e-book collection or through literary classics that are freely available in ebook formats.
The 11Digital Reader Library” would also allow students to have access to other modes of information: online resources and study aids, practice problems, videos, applications, visual content, etc.
This digital reader library would allow us to directly combat our problem of practice: Students would have immediate access to up-to-date literary resources and textbooks.
