Question:

How are E-books used in the English faculty of a High school X?

Outlining the ropic or problem in my own words.

While there is a lot of buzz about how Electronic books could be used in the classroom, there are few examples showing if, let alone how this is being done.

I propose to survey teachers and students to find out if students are using E-books in class, and if so, how.

This would be relevant in termof finding out if these resources are being used, and if not why not, how can we make them easier to use. If they are being used, how are they being used so that this can be a model for other teachers and students.

The Tenopir article is of use because it discusses how Ebooks are actualy used, highlighting the benefits of Ereaders for text/reference books.

The Ishizuka article discusses how E-resources are utilised in a specific charter school in the USA.

The Gray article is useful as it specifically addresses they way E-books may be used in a liberal arts class.

Okay, Not finished for 2010… EER 500

Posted by arlekeno on November 16, 2010

Ok, am not finished for the year, I am doing a summer course, Introduction to Educational Research. Teaching me about research into education. A tad boring maybe, but very useful.

I am doing a summer course so I can finish this masters more quickly, I wish I didn’t need to do a masters, but I do. So be it.

looking at the subject outline, some parts are daunting and others a less so, but the text book is SO THICK!

Bryman: SOCIAL RESEARCH METHODS (3rd ed). Oxford.
