To paper or not to paper, that is the question...

Here is a link to an interesting blog post about a teacher's foray into the world of paperless classroom education. Personally, I have participated in a plethora of conversations about paperless education, but most of them have focused on paperless administration. For the most part, that is a relatively simple task to accomplish. However, going paperless in the classroom, I'm sure, can be quite daunting for some teachers. Check out the blog post as she has some great ideas for implementation. It would really require a teacher to alter the way they look at education. Particularly, a teacher would have to forgo the idea of being the purveyor of knowledge and realize that they should play the role of knowledgeable guide.

I do think there are some interesting implications related to the idea of a Digital Divide.
