This story of “the child shall lead them” is entertaining, but I think it partially misses the point. Why are we still talking about “handouts” for schools in 2014?
I just got a thick packet of paper in the mail from one of the universities where I teach. Every year I get this, most of which is exactly the same as the previous year, and I ask them, “Why not just send us PDFs?” But the bureaucratic behemoth moves very, very slowly. The other university where I teach has, in the past couple of years, gone digital. The difference between public and private, I suppose.
- Do you like getting handouts (“prints”) in your classes? Have any of your other teachers tried to “go paperless”? Explain the pros and cons of each method and what things you think should stay analog vs. what things should go digital (for school and for work).
