Yesterday, May 19, 2011, we ran a little experiment with a Color Nook in our High School Library. I had a couple students who were using the devices as eReaders test several tasks. I should have tried this before, but it is sort of hectic right now.
The students jumped on the Internet using the web browsing app and were able to log into Google Docs and edit documents. The next step was to log into Edublogs and post to the class blog, which was easily accomplished. This creates another option for mobile technology in the classroom. With ever shrinking, or straight out disappearing budgets in public education, the more options the better.
