That's a pretty pitiful sample size. I wouldn't read too much into it. I would also want to know the ages of the students involved.

Anecdotally, I have found the iPad great for school. I use the GoodReader app for reading PDFs. But I don't know what the Kindle's note-taking is like.


Yep. This is what I've been telling people about my Kindle since I got it. It's great for reading novels, newspapers, and magazines. It's good for nonfiction pleasure reading. But it's not useful for reference books and texts in which you need to move around.

I appreciate the cognitive mapping insight as well. I would never try to use a Kindle as a student.

Travis, small indeed. But it does reflect what I've heard a number of people complain about. I've used Kindle reader on my computer. I'm not sure how similar it is to actual reader but I wouldn't want it for most of the reference reading that I do.
