Ebooks in schools
Handhelds Used for Learning, Not Games
PDAStreet has an article about schools taking up offers on Palm PDA's from for example PalmOne and PowerByHand (the owner of among other companies: PalmGear, PocketGear and eReader).
Olathe Unified School District of Kansas, MO deployed eBook software and eBooks from eReader.com over the past year. According to the district, its pilot deployment of Palm handhelds and 500 eBook titles from eReader.com's free Classic Collection, as well as some purchased eBooks, reduced overall expenditures on printed books and other materials by about $20 per student. That's for the 3,000 students who took part in the program.
In addition to eBooks, Olathe used eReader.com's eBook Studio to create electronic school calendars, student and teacher handbooks, faculty phone books and style manuals for writing classes. In years past, it printed many of these materials so far in advance that they were outdated before the school year even started. School administrators can now make additions to the documents up to the last minute.
Olathe now plans to expand the scheme to cover the entire school district of 23,500 students!
