  • Will iPads Replace Textbooks In K-12 Classrooms? [View article]
    Nice article. I certainly agree.

    Textbook adoption at K-12 is very expensive. And then you upgrade every 5 or so years. Doesn't make sense. No more book bags to lug around; just a simple tablet (K-12 and University). But publishers are going to fight this tooth and nail. And perhaps the authors too, especially at the university level. I'm afraid textbooks are going to go the way of magazines and newspapers.

    Oh, one more thing.

    People in our church can be seen reading the bible and following along with the minister and his sermon on their tablets; most are iPads.. Don't you love it. We haven't gone wireless yet in our church.........probably just a matter of time.

    Eventually ministers will be saying:

    "Please turn to Mathew on your tablet Bible and read along with me."

    Attendance among the younger generation will probably skyrocket.

    Welcome to the digital world.
