What do all of you think about the introduction of E-Books into schools
instead of regular textbooks??
I personally do not like them at all and would like to find a way to have them removed from all of my classes lol. I do understand that they are trying to save trees and make it more convenient and affordable but I think that it does the reverse... If your internet or computer is messing up or if you (live in the stone age) don't have internet at all you have to go somewhere else just to review your textbook. Many people also end up just printing their chapters which you can't sell and if you school charges for printing... can get very expensive. Also it is proven that the physical act of reading, tabbing and highlighting actually helps retention of the information that the person is reading. You can't really do that with an Ebook. In general I just don't understand their motivation for making them MANDATORY. If someone prefers an Ebook, great, but they should not be required in my opinion. What are your experiences? What do you think?
