NY School All-in on Trend of All-Digital Textbooks
At Archbishop Stepinac High School, the backpacks got a whole lot lighter this year because nearly every book ‚ÄĒ from freshman biology to senior calculus ‚ÄĒ is now digital, accessible on students' laptops and tablets.
"The last couple of years, this would have been like 30 pounds," says sophomore Brandon Cabaleiro, whose load nowadays includes just his iPad, his lunch and a jacket.
But the lost weight and a book bill that dropped from $600 to $150 were not the main reasons the all-boys Roman Catholic school north of New York City has gone all-in on the growing trend of digital textbooks.
Except for books on religion, all the texts the school uses are part of a digital bookshelf kept on an Internet cloud....
sorry about that blank comment. tablets. Well, they're Bible is already ruined because it is a Catholic one.actually many people should be happy because they can get the original King James Bible, and the one of 1769. in one easy place when you use an electronic Bible program such as the e-Sword. And Bible for Android and all those from www.crossword.org, will have the strong concordance with them which certainly helps with the King James Version. I have yet to be able to read for a really long period of time on a tablet but I'm getting better at it. I was thinking eReader might be the better way to go. But even the short blurb that sa had, show the advantages of the electronic age. If it makes it easier to get rid of Catholic material it can only be a good thing.
