What is the e-edition?

Our e-edition provides an exact replica of the print version of The Daily Sentinel. As they can with the traditional newspaper, students may check out each day's headlines and flip through pages via the computer.

Why is it worthwhile to have access to this version?

The e-edition engages students using a medium in which they are very comfortable. Students can use keyword searches to find information in each section of the paper. They can copy and paste articles. They can read stories and hear them as well, thanks to the Audio feature. They can even translate articles into Spanish and ten other languages!

Teachers may use this version to focus students' attention on just one article of interest. Teachers who use a SMARTBoard(c) may display a page or sections of a page.

The e-edition is green. Newsprint is decreased, thus saving trees and the fuel spent to deliver the print product.

How much is it?

Nada. Zip. Nothing. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, this electronic edition is provided at no charge to teachers and students.

Do students need to use the same computer every day?


May I use the e-edition outside of school?

It is not meant to replace a regular home subscription, either by a teacher or student. However, we understand how precious time is for teachers and that you might want to use the e-edition to create a lesson plan at home on your free time; we can only applaud you for your devotion. We must note that this service should be used an educational resource tool only and ask that you respect its use.

May I access previous e-editions?

Yes, you may access previous weekday e-editions up to two years prior to the current date.

May I use the e-edition even if I do not have computers for all my students to use?

That is fine, as long as you intend to use the e-edition in an educational setting as an instructional tool. You may, for example, use your e-edition with a SMARTBoard(c) or Promethean Board(c) or an LCD projector. If you assign a lesson based on the e-edition, students may later work on the lesson on a different school computer, such as in the library.

May I share my licenses with another teacher?

We request that each teacher order the number of licenses he or she needs. NIE is required to provide a reasonable accounting of how many students are actually using the e-edition. If each teacher who uses the e-edition is documented, we then present precise figures to our newspaper auditors each year.

We require that teachers indicate the highest number of students who will be using the e-edition in any class during the day. (For example, if one class has 22 students and another has 25 students, request 25 to ensure that enough licenses are provided.)
