Likewise, people ask, should students textbooks be replaced by notebook computers or tablets?

Many students in high school would agree that using notebook computers would be easier, functional and efficient instead of using textbooks and notebooks. If schools would replace textbooks and notebooks with notebook computers, schools would not have to waste a lot of paper, which causes deforestation.

Secondly, should textbooks be replaced by ebooks? The answer is obvious. E-books are not only convenient and economical, they are also better for the environment than paper books. I strongly believe e-books should replace physical books. Firstly, physical books aren't space efficient.

People also ask, should textbooks be replaced by iPads?

So the question of whether traditional textbooks should be replaced by devices like the iPad isn't so much a question of "if," but "when." Another argument for the use of iPads in the classroom is that children are more drawn to these devices than they are tattered, old textbooks.

Why textbooks should not be replaced with tablets?

Tablets should not replace textbooks. Print textbooks cannot freeze, crash or get hacked. Tablets have to be fixed by a skilled technician if they break, which can end up costing more than the tablet's worth. These devices also require expensive Wi-Fi networks, while textbooks need no connectivity.
