Who Needs Paper?

Here’s some of what I said to Wired News.com when interviewed by reporter Katie Dean concerning the paperless classroom. “The faculty believe that they are moving to a largely paperless classroom because they don’t carry stuff to class,” said John DeAngelo, associate dean for information technology at the Fox School. “In their mind, they’ve created a fairly paperless environment.”

But in reality, students often print articles for their class, preferring to read on paper rather than on the computer –- especially if they are in a hurry, he said. “Despite everything we think about the e-generation, students are still pretty dependent on paper,” DeAngelo said.  http://www.wired.com/news/school/0,1383,53747,00.html
