Is it Time for Schools to Move Away From Hard-Copy Books?

Most people have distinct memories of their school life, where they would have to spend time and energy organising what books they’ll need for the days lessons and then lugging them around the school the whole day. For the first time in human history, children are able to have the reasonable expectation that school-books are a thing of the pasty, thanks to the internet. Online and local digital storage of information and learning resources clearly has the potential to revolutionise how students gain access to their school’s curriculum.

Whether or not this will be the case still seems to be up for debate, but for those who are looking forward to the day it happens, there are some good signs out there. Many schools have been pioneering the move towards online learning, with many of them even handing out tablet devices for them to access it.
