A Year without Paper: Tablet Computers in the Classroom
Fons, John
Physics Teacher, v48 n7 p481-483 Oct 2010
Students can be seen throughout any campus in America carrying their cell phones, laptop computers, and iPhones. I've seen a tremendous increase in the student use of laptop computers during lectures and students often ask for electronic copies of lectures rather than printed versions. In an attempt to adapt to my students' increasingly technology-driven lifestyle, I issued a tablet computer to all of my students, and for a year all course materials were digital, with no distribution of paper.
