The paperless classroom is not just one where the pen and paper is replaced by digital text. It is one where twenty-first century technology tools enhance communication, help students stay organized, and engage and motivate students through collaborative and creative classroom experiences. It is one where interactive and adaptive games and programs make acquiring knowledge and skills fun and competitive. And it is one where students learn technological skills - and importantly, how to effectively and properly use these skills - that will prepare them for twenty-first century life.
This ebook will describe how to create an engaging, organized, and student-centric paperless classroom with digital text, media-rich projects and presentations, learning management systems, communication tools, and even the cell phones in our students’ pockets.
