North Carolina School Transitions to All-Digital Learning Tools

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

I caught this segment on PBS about a school that is transitioning from textbooks and other printed materials to all-digital learning tools. I stumbled upon the piece unintentionally but was quickly drawn in by the new concepts that are being proposed in schools today. When I was in elementary school we had almost no digital contact. Now there are schools that don’t want textbooks. I have mixed feelings on this. I don’t doubt that there is an advantage to this style, but I have to wonder if there isn’t too much tech exposure here. It seems like a mix between old and new practices would be better warranted than a pure digital medium. That is just my view from afar. Check out this video to decide for yourself.
