Getting Started

eBooks are fortunately or unfortunately the future of literacy. One of the big benefits for teachers using eBooks with a projector is that it is like a “big” book. The main benefit for the big/eBook is that all the students would be able to see the images and even the text. The eBook is a great alternative for reading a-louds because of the visibility and the ability to manipulate the book. When I say manipulate I mean that we can highlight, write notes, circle elements in an image etc. The main downfall for using a projector and an eBook is that teachers do not demonstrate proper book handling.


  • Here is an article to read about Digital Literacy
  • This is a link to a video tutorial I made and put on YouTube.
  • A PowerPoint that can accompany the video tutorial
