There’s a great report over on The Irish Times website about a Crumlin school which has ditched books for iPads.
According to Blake Hodkinson, principal at St Kevin’s College in Crumlin, this system is 40 per cent cheaper than buying books. Until now the school has provided all books at a cost of €20,000 per year, with €4,000 of that contributed by families.
The report can be read here. It’s hard not to be jealous, when all you could do for fun is class was draw facial hair on people in your history books.
