    spend the money on something useful. Books, maybe?
    I have recently bought and quite enjoy my e-reader but I am an adult with a long history of reading.
    Just because it has a plug and a USB cable doesn't mean kids will be motivated to read.

    The delusions fostered/nursed and (gulp) acted upon by managers regarding technology are inspiring me to blog something .....................
  2. Advice:
    1. First make sure the ebooks you want are available on the device, a surprising number are not.
    2. Then make sure the school can afford to buy said ebooks for every device.
    3. Touch screen and sticky fingers are rarely a good mix.
