Ditch the schoolbooks and take the tablets

* I believe that every secondary school student should have tablets or ebooks. I am aware that since schools came back after the summer there has been a lot of debate in the media on this issue and I feel very strongly that schools need to embrace this change.

Every day, I have to walk home with a heavy schoolbag on my back. It doesn't help that our school is at the top of a steep hill and students are wrecked and in pain by the time they reach the school doors.

It is time for schools to face up to the fact that technology is the future. Look around you. Everyone is using a smartphone, an iPad, all of those gadgets.
