Tablets take over textbooks in Mumbai’s schools says The times of India
Tablets are supported by most teachers and students, are much lighter than print textbooks, and improve standardized test scores. Tablets can hold hundreds of textbooks, save the environment by lowering the amount of printing, increase student interactivity and creativity, and that digital textbooks are cheaper than print textbooks.
Remember the regular day at school? Lugging a heavy backpack? Today, students arrive in their classrooms, switch on their tablets log onto the school’s secured network and check whether there are any messages or notes shared by their teachers at the click of a button.
Scientific studies have shown that school going students should carry less than 15% of its own weight. If we weigh the school bag of a sixth grade student or a tenth grade student, with a day’s textbooks in it the weight is far more than what it permissible. It results in back pain problems and fatigue after school. A tablet would reduce the burden of carrying all the thick textbooks that add to the weight of their backpack.
