Here's one way to lighten a student's backpack: say goodbye to textbooks.
Clearwater High School next year will replace traditional textbooks with ereaders. The gadgets will be fully loaded with all the textbooks students need, minus all the paper.
For rising junior Bennie Niles, 17, it could mean accessing English, math and physics texts via a handheld device more on par with the technology he and his peers use every day.
As you read this, please remember all the Kindle DX pilot programs that have said the Kindle doesn't work as a digital textbook. This school will probably reach the same conclusion.
