How close is the paperless classroom?

St Bridget's Vocational School in Loughrea plans to do away with paper textbooks by 2013.

Instead of buying books, students in first year pay €100 to use a netbook for five years. They also pay an annual €20 maintenance fee, and an annual e-book charge of €110.

Principal Sean Connolly said: "It is a very natural change for the students. If we want to motivate the students we have to reflect the modern world."
