Education

eReadia is a technology company that creates tools which extend and enhance the e-book experience for users, particularly students in K-12. We are primarily focused on optimizing education via mobile reading platforms such as the Kindle, the iPad, the Nook, and other Android tablets. Additionally, we create applications which give users the capability to create custom e-books for reference purposes and to publish their own materials either independently or through eReadia. We also provide consultation and support services to schools and other to help them establish and manage e-reading programs, inclusive of materials in audio and video formats.

Specifically, we:

–provide online tools for the creation, management, and distribution of user-created e-books
–build custom apps for schools, districts, and teachers that support teaching and learning on platforms like the iPad
–provide consultation and training for school administrators and teachers in the use of e-book technologies
–provide sourcing services for open educational resources (OER) to schools and districts
–provide open reference resources on removable media, including video, audio, and e-books

Training

eReadia is happy to announce that we have developed a comprehensive training agenda for schools making the shift to ereaders like the Amazon Kindle, the Sony Reader, the Barnes and Noble Nook, and others.

Through our sponsorship of the widely read blog EduKindle and the Kindle Educators Group, we have been answering questions about Kindles and Kindle use for nearly two years. From this experience with the aspects of Kindle use and management, we have developed a training that is fun, informative, and, best of all, effective.
