should schools replace books with laptops or ipads?
Closed

Well in a way I think it would be a good idea because then children would not have to lug around a heavy school bag all day. On the other hand, the books might be better because on an ipad or a laptop, there is too much of a distraction for the kids whereas if they have a book, they cant keep clicking on different stuff and going onto pages that they arent supposed to be going on. What do you think?

totally agree: books are forever updated a great expense, cost savings with laptops/pad, plus less strain from carrying heavy books, plus laptops could be rented out by schools reducing costs to familys

No school should not be replace book with laptop or ipads becouse it will be too expensive on the side of Govt.to equip all schools with that and as it well be too expensive for parents to pay there children school fees which will deprive many kids not to go school then there will me more uneducated people than educated ones which will generate thief,terrorist etc.on the whole world

Bags are too heavy for kids to carry, and kids are so up to date with technology it would be an issue

Much easier for kids with learning difficulties to use a computer than books. Also less for them to carry to and from school.

I think it would be a shame for the book to become redundant, children seem to have lost any interest in reading books and are therefore missing out on a very fundamental activity.

Text book is traditional and it gives authenticity and credibility. Secondly Ipad can be harmful to the body and mind in a longer period of time.

There are pros and cons. Pros : Lighter to carry. You can put a good number of books on 1 I-Pad .
Cons: There is something magical about reading a book. A book doesn't need batteries

I think iPads would be a good idea for the simple reason the cost of books are getting more expensive every year! On the point of flicking to other things on the iPad I presume they can be adapted for school use so only allowed programs or books can be used?
