My NAPP Inquiry linked E Learning and improving Maori student literacy.  I used the rather old fashioned buddy reading idea and E Books read in Samsung Tablets to improve a small group of Year 9 student's asttle literacy scores over the year.  This has lead to our school library investing in E books and linking with the local town library, that I was using to share the range of E books that our students could access.  Perhaps small steps with E Learning is best. Small successes help teachers and students to become more confident using E learning.

    Hi Diana,

    Great to read about the linkages made with your school library and your local town library around e-book provision. Some public libraries are now providing access to e-books which is a painless way for your school community to try out the e-books before deciding to pay for buying or subscribing to them yourselves.

    If anyone is thinking about e-book provision through their school library, National Library's Services to Schools has more information on its website about school libraries and e-books as well as professional development. Let us know if you would like PD on this topic in your area.
