4 of The Best e-Readers for Teachers and Students

When it comes to digital reading, e-readers have come a long way in establishing themselves as viable competitors for laptops and tablets. They offer unique features and functions that enhance digital reading. Some of their main strengths include: portability, simplicity, distraction-free interface, annotations, among others. E-readers also allow you to access and carry your personal library wherever you go.

Two of the most popular brands out there is Kindle and Kobo. Over the years I have experimented with both, but recently I found that I was more attracted to Kindle (Paperwhite), probably because it is the only e-reader that gives me a similar reading experience as when I read a paperback. So if you and your students are looking for e-readers and are still in doubt about what to buy, there are four options you might want to consider below. These are in my opinion some of the best e-readers for students. Check them out and share your feedback with us about the social media profiles with us Educational technology and mobile learning.
