Kindle working miracles for weak readers
In a TKC podcast Len Edgerly has a great interview (audio file a bit down the page) with a teacher telling about how the Kindle (with text-to-speech) is a surprisingly powerful help to students with reading difficulties. She tells some amazing stories. Apart from many of the students going from fear of reading to enthusiasm for it, the class did 70% in a standard test compared to the (typical) 30% for last year's class!
