Print versus Tablet Resources

bk&tabletRecent Headline: “Schools are increasingly replacing textbooks with hand-held tablets to sustain students’ interest and keep per-pupil costs down.” How does this compare with businesses’ usage of print versus tablet resources? Certainly both have their strong points. A tablet is easier to carry than a stack of books or paper printouts, and it’s easy to read in just about any setting, indoors or out. On the other hand, books and printed reports never run out of batteries or need an Internet connection. And maybe this is too simple a comparison. Schools and parents are increasingly using computers and tablets for short video presentations like the ones created by Salman (Sal) Kahn through the Kahn Academy in which students watch a lesson plan one on one with an expert to prepare for class. This represents a major shift in educational procedures. To what degree is this style of teaching being utilized in corporate training? Share your viewpoint.  -Gloria Petersen
