the world is Global, technology has taken over. it's a good idea to incorporate the knowledge into children. The use of tablets in schools is a good idea. and it'll be more fun for the kids.

I think tablets are a distraction, they should stick to books but also teach technology

There have been studies on learning from electronic sources versus printed books. It has been proven that people retain more information when reading words on paper rather than on a screen. Kids today already have electronics 24/7. It won't hurt to make them read from textbooks instead of iPads and such. Plus, textbooks don't have batteries to worry about.

I will always have both. Technology advances and kids need to know how to maneuver it. However, there's nothing like your child in your lap while you read a classic from your childhood to them. It's a current issue as I have a first grader who is addicted to screens.

My instinctive reaction to stand up for paper books. Three big issues do make we sway towards ebooks though.
1.) They can help people save money.
2.) They are lighter and won't strain the backs of students as much.
3.) We need to stop using so many paper products to help protect the environment.

I prefer paper books and don't mind tablets, to an extent, being used in school. Yes tablets help make learning fun but there are some kids that are a little to clever for their own good and will find a way around safe guards to keep them on track.
