“Why the Death of Paper Books May Be Greatly Exaggerated” Is My Newest BAM! Show

paperbooks

Why the Death of Paper Books May Be Greatly Exaggerated is the title of my latest ten-minute BAM! Radio Show (the image shows “textbooks” instead of “books,” but that will be corrected on the site).

I’m joined by Dan Willingham and Kristin Ziemke – they have both contributed written commentaries to a future Education Week Teacher column on the topic of eBooks versus paper books.

I’m adding it to All My BAM Radio Shows – Linked With Descriptions.
