Going Green: Managing a Paperless Classroom
De Bonis, Susan; De Bonis, Nick
Online Submission, US-China Education Review A 1 p83-87 2011
The LMS (learning management system) at many schools for delivering, tracking and managing education relies on TEL (technology-enhanced learning), what Nichols called "pedagogy empowered by digital technology" (Nichols, 2008). It includes the "paperless classroom" in traditional (not online) classes in which faculty and students exchange information and assignments electronically. The paperless non-online classroom pedagogy is designed to improve the efficiency of the learning experience, to contribute to asynchronous learning and to help students develop the electronic skills and competencies they will need in the post-graduate private sector while contributing to the sustainability efforts of the university. The main objective of this paper is to provide a framework for managing a paperless classroom, including best practices, pedagogical issues and the "how-do-I" suggestions.
