Engaging Students

The same passion we have for reading applies to student literacy. We believe that when students have access to books and read more as they do with Amazon devices, they can learn more. Schools across the country have used Amazon devices to motivate and engage students in reading.

Introducing Whispercast

Schools can now centrally manage a Kindle reading program using Whispercast, Amazon's free self-service tool. With Whispercast, schools can reduce the administrative cost and complexity of distributing books to students on their Kindles or any device with the free Kindle reading app, including iPad, iPhone, Android, PCs, and Macs. Schools can also provide a safe browsing experience for students.

Student Engagement with Books

Kindle excites students about reading. The same great features that help you lose yourself in a book on Kindle translate seamlessly to the classroom, helping students learn to read or study more effectively. With Kindle, students no longer need to be discouraged by the size of a book or self-conscious when carrying their books to class, motivating even reluctant and struggling readers.

Books for an Entire Class in Minutes

Teachers can now think of an eBook and have it distributed to an entire class wirelessly in minutes using Whispercast, a free self-service online tool. Schools can use Whispercast to leverage the Kindle Store's massive collection of over 1 million books, newspapers, and magazines, including millions of free, out-of-copyright titles like Jane Eyre and Oliver Twist.

Designed for Reading

Across all reading levels, Kindle can help meet the individual needs of students with adjustable fonts, line spacing, text-to-speech, built-in reference and dictionary. Students can also add their own notes, highlights, and bookmarks that they can access from their Kindle or any device with the free Kindle app, creating a truly personalized reading experience.

Vocabulary Development

Student motivation plays a large part in reading comprehension. Lotta C. Larson, Professor of Education at Kansas State University conducted a year-long study to determine whether the use of Kindle positively impacts literacy development in primary students and found that students who received Kindles improved their vocabulary development.
