Internet@Schools East - Registration Now Open!

 Back in Washington, DC This Year!!!

The challenge of change continues to affect all those in K-12 education. All this change is, of course, affecting those very areas where you, the library media and technology specialists, are practicing your craft … teaching, learning, advising, supporting, collaborating. Your efforts and your programs must remain at the forefront as the education community ramps up in these difficult and fluid times to equip all students for life in the 21st century. What a challenge!

Join us at Internet@Schools East 2011, being held at the Hilton Washington in Washington, DC, where you can network face-to-face with presenters and attendees addressing the same challenge, even while you blog, twitter, or text with colleagues far afield.  You’ll be well served with ideas to take back to your school and media center.

HTML5-Powered E-Readers for the Browser
by Paula J. Hane
Starbucks recently announced the launch of its Starbucks Digital Network, in partnership with Yahoo! The offer of free Wi-Fi in its U.S. stores caught my eye, but I was even more interested in the free content (some normally subscription-based), which was billed as a "collection of hand-picked premium news, entertainment, and lifestyle content along with local insights and events." But wait, there was even more hidden in the press release: There were free ebooks from major publishers, courtesy of the Bookish Reading Club and New Word City. But here's the sentence that propelled me to investigate this matter further for this article: "A new HTML5 reader, powered by SkyShelf from LibreDigital, allows customers to read books in the browser on their laptops, tablets and many smartphones."
