News of note

The game-changer of the week is Amazon entering the education fray with its Whispernet Kindle management system for schools (and other organizations) -- while details surrounding the plan aren't too specific yet, I worry that this is very bad news indeed for many school libraries.

Speaking of those digital files, I spoke with journalist Liz Logan about ereading for an article for Ampily, NewsCorps' new education site about my ereader program at my other school, though that's not too explicitly stated. What a thrill to be quoted in an article with Jessamyn West!

In other news, I've been saying this FOR YEARS: AP classes are a scam.
