With the emergence of a number of reasonable cheap e-book readers and better interfaces on new generation phones like the iphone, the issue of how these can be used for learniing becomes more prominent. In addition, there are now a number of excellent sources of free e-books. So the questions are:
- What are the benefits of these tools for learners, how might they be used?
- What are the disadvantages?
- Are there any good case studies/examples of how these are being used in education?
- Are there particular ways in which learning activiites can be structured to take advantage of these tools?
