From the Toronto Sun:
It’s not the future yet.
Premier Dalton McGuinty said he believes it’s too soon to begin equipping Ontario students with electronic textbooks.
“I think that over time we are probably going to make a transition to more technology-based reading and learning for our students,” McGuinty said Wednesday. “But my fear is at this point ... it may be a little premature because I’m not comfortable with all kids having access to that in their homes right now. And until we can be assured of that, I’d be very reluctant to move ahead.”
McGuinty said he does like the idea in principle of replacing textbooks with digital books in the future.
