And, yet, many schools want to put iPads in these kids’ hands instead of textbooks!!
Are we now in a race to see if we can produce the DUMBEST kids on the planet!!???
If a system can save $$ by using electronic books, I don’t have a problem with that. Catholic schools here in Indiana are using them, and believe me they are the ones that struggle with budgets.
My daughter, in 9th grade, has plenty of textbooks - but is allowed to bring her own iPad to school for note taking. I have noticed her note taking ability to have improved immensely since she started bringing it to school, as she types faster than she writes.
However, classwork and assignments to be turned in must be handwritten - and legibility is part of the grades.
