See on Scoop.itCalling All Lecturers

We’re living in the future. So why are a lot of students stuck with heavy print textbooks still? What would Steve Jobs say? Perhaps it’s time to consider going digital.

Karen Johnson‘s insight:

Although Edudemic is mainly about schools rather than post compulsory education there is still a lot HE can use from their input.  This article puts the ‘digital in edcuation’ concept really well, though I don’t agree fully with all of it.  In reply to the section, "Arguments against digital", there is no reason not to use handwriting with digital devices when there are apps like Penultimate available.
