I’ve read dozens of opinions and research reports on the topic of textbooks and tablets in schools. As you might expect, there are different perspectives on the subject. A popular way for articles to frame the conversation is to compare tablets with textbooks, as if having one excluded use of the other. Of course, this is not the case. Nonetheless, the following visual (click on it for a larger version) represents some of the different perspectives as well as references to summaries of a couple of research reports related to the topic. I’d appreciate your additions and contributions in the comment section.
