USA Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Amazon.com Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos will announce the global launch of the Kindle Mobile Learning Initiative on June 20, 2012 in Washington, D.C. This public-private partnership with Amazon.com and the U.S. government will create a global e-reader program that introduces aspects of U.S. society and culture directly to young people, students, and international audiences in new ways and expands English language learning opportunities worldwide.
The US State Department and Amazon made news last week with the government seeking to purchase a copious amount of Kindles, but no one knew what they were for. It seems there is going to be a huge influx of schools and educational institutions adopting the Amazon Kindle for use in the classroom and learning environments.
