The College of Westchester is piloting the use of the Kindle Fire amongst this year’s high school Jumpstart class. According to a poll of students in the program, 93.5% of them found the Kindle Fire easy to use, and 89.1% of them found it better than a textbook.

This tablet from Amazon, similar to the iPad, has been taking off in classrooms across the country. You can read more about it here on CW’s Kelly Walsh’s blog, Emerging Ed Tech.
