…as we were. The SBP noted at the weekend that ‘one of the country’s most high-tech schools are ditching their iPads for the humble schoolbook’. It appears that St. Colman’s College in Mayo, an early adopter is reverting to the more traditional approach. Why so?
The €700 cost… a protective cover and all the school e-textbooks.
And it continues:
Physical books can be rented to limit the cost.
‘You’re talking about nearly €700 versus €150 for getting your books…. the publishers failed to provide the e-books at a cheaper prices’ according to the principal.
There’s more, but an interesting straw in the wind.
