My Students

During the pandemic time, we cannot go to stores or libraries. We lockdown in the home. One of the best things we can do that read more and learn more and finally reflect what we learned to our students and share with our colleagues. In this case, Amazon Kindle would be a very useful tool for it. We have an opportunity to access every kind of digital book on the internet. Therefore, Amazon Kindle would be a very helpful tool for teachers to read digital books.

My Project

Amazon Kindle white is a very good tool to read digital books and materials. We can access a lot of different resources through this device.

We don't have a chance to go to a library or bookstore in this situation.

But, we can still access millions of digital books at home if we have the internet and a good device. Amazon Kindle is one of the best devices for digital books. In that way, we can access Amazon Kindle unlimited library and download the necessary resources and use them for education.

Digital resources would be very useful in terms of my students too. I can share part of these resources with my students and create an assignment in that way. Also, it would be easier to use the digital version since we are doing distance learning, I can easily share the parts of lesson topics on my Zoom meeting or create an assignment on Google Classroom about that parts, and my students would be access these parts of these resources from their home and they would be learned from different resources easily in this way. Those digital resources also would very convenient in terms of lesson planning. Because I can easily use copy and paste features instead of typing and it saves a lot of time for me.
