The Argument

Replacing traditional textbooks with e-textbooks should be a gradual process. We cannot hope to have every school and every student switch to e-textbooks immediately as there are many things that have to be considered: teachers and parents’ opinions, textbook suppliers, and the school curriculum, to name a few. By making tablets an optional choice, we can learn more about the pros and cons of using electronic textbooks for classroom learning and optimise it for a more improved system that can be fully implemented in schools worldwide.
