What is an eEdition?
• An eEdition is an exact replica of the print edition of The Denver Post. They are digitized pages of the newspapers that are delivered to you in a password-protected website.
How do I use the eEdition in my classroom without everyday computer access for all students?
• Use a SMART Board or LCD projector, which requires access to only one computer.
• Copy articles to overhead film and project on a wall.
• Print and distribute copies of newspaper articles and serial stories
In the past, students could take the newspaper home to read. How will they do that now?
• Students can e-mail articles (with a note about why the article is useful) home for reading or school projects. They can access these articles beyond the 30 days the eEditions are available.
• Send printed copies of articles home with students.
• An added plus is that you can control which articles/sections your students see, if needed.
How does the eEdition fit with preparing our students for the 21st Century?
• The eEdition is a compliment to the resources and methods students are already using to get information.
• Google and Yahoo searches will return millions of hits - many from questionable sources. Our eEdition searches will only returned information that has been published in The Denver Post -- information that has been vetted and passed editorial review.
• Articles that are saved, e-mailed or printed include the section, the date and the page number at the top of the page. Students have a complete record of the source of the information, helpful in developing good research practices and analysis and critical thinking.
How many licenses should I order?
• For classroom use, order licenses to match the maximum number of students that you have in your largest class. In a computer lab, order a license for each computer.
• Each teacher will receive one login and password to use for all their licenses.
• Teachers should have their own orders, instead of a bulk order for the school. This allows us to maintain accountability to our sponsors and auditors.
