    Students in Sint-Jozef School Only Bring an iPad to Class Instead of Textbooks

    It is reported that the Sint-Jozef school in Blankenberge is requiring all of its 710 students to turn up with an iPad to continue taking classes on Sept.3 when new semester begins. Meanwhile, the school set up a rental system for those who cannot pay for an iPad at once to rent a iPad at $150 per school year. After three years of renting, the student gets to keep the iPad.



    Pro:
    -Much less paper, reduce the cost of education;
    -Easily to carry with instead of heavy textbooks;

    Con:
    -Distract students in class, means some may play irrelevant apps.

    Maybe it is a good idea to make classes entirely digital, maybe not. We holds different opinions and welcome to share your comments below.
