Great article. I love my ebooks…a my hard copies too.
Ebooks seem like a quality use as you said for multiple students to access and also interact with classic literature in a more modern format. The concern with them is over price, not of the content itself but with the devices capable of storing such material. If teachers have access to ebooks I believe there is a place for them in the classroom however there is still merit in having such things as a personal library so students can explore the physical books and see the time and bulk of what it truly takes to write a complete work. Some students are visual learners and the ability to see the actual book and not just the next page on a singular screen may help them appreciate the time, effort, and expertise it takes to come up with a well-known novel or literary work.
As with newspapers, radio, and TV — new media only augments but rarely, if ever, replaces. I think there is a place for both.— Vicki Davis
