Technology useful or just a distraction?

Using New Tools

Kindle Fire
I attended a conference several years ago where there  was a gadget "petting zoo".  Since then, I like to experiment with new technologies in the library.  This summer, I have integrated the Kindle Fire and Fire TV into my read aloud time.  Much like an IPad with Apple TV, you can mirror the Kindle tablet.  

Today's read-aloud with Technology
Fire TV
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Experimenting  with new technology tools

We are trying out the Amazon Echo.  
More information to come, on this tool.

I noticed that Gwyneth Jones, The Daring Librarian, has an Amazon Echo in her library as well.  Here she writes about the tool on her blog - 
There's an Echo in My Library!
