Schools shift from textbooks to tablets
from eSchool News
Well before the cleanup from Superstorm Sandy was in full swing, students could read about the weather system that slammed the East Coast in their textbooks. Welcome to the new digital bookcase, where traditional ink-and-paper textbooks have given way to iPads and book bags are getting lighter. Publishers update students' books almost instantly with the latest events or research. Schools are increasingly looking to handheld tablets as a way to sustain students' interest, reward their achievements and, in some cases, actually keep per-student costs down.
