In the past year, many schools have explored the use of's Kindle DX for academic purposes. Grinnell College's pilot took place in a first-year seminar in fall 2009 and relied heavily on collaboration between curricular technology specialists, librarians, and others on campus. Because opinions about the Kindle DX were mixed, the team developed a subsequent study to investigate student reading and note-taking habits. This presentation will focus on the logistics of managing the Kindle, the findings from both studies, and areas for future investigation.
