Please post some topics about schools if you know. Thank you.
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Schools should use electronic books(e-books) instead of printed paper books.
Nowadays, there were many breakthroughs of electronic devices, such as smart phones. People tried to do a lot of works, that were done by their own hands, with the devices. However, there are some that is not turned electronically, like textbooks. I think that it is fair to use e-books rather than use printed textbooks.
First and foremost, using e-books is faster and more convenient. By using them, we could reduce time spent on unnecessary work like finding the part that should be started. This can also help students’ bags be lighter, which makes them more comfortable. The flow of the class will be faster since they could find information easier. Let’s say that you are in class of a subject. The teacher opens the paper book and asks ‘Where should we start?’ and we find out about it. This is really useless part of the class.
Moreover, multitasking could be done by using e-books. When you have simple question like definition of a word, you do not need to ask but search the Internet while you are taking class. This could result in time-saving effect. In addition, if you have a question with your private situation that should not be spread by others, it is more comfortable to ask to your teacher. For example, let’s say that when you are listening to the lecture and you got an e-mail by multitasking that one of your relative is dead. Then you can just send private message to your teacher and he or she can get your message without having anyone else to know.
To conclude, I think that schools should change to using electronic textbooks instead of original paper books. This will be an efficient policy for both teachers and students.
