If only online education and e-learning had been around in my day! I remember later years in upper school with heavy books and files we each carted around with us. It seemed awful in my day – centuries ago, but my children’s generation have had much more but at last online learning tools have reduced this burden. There is always an benefit in having your own set of learning materials, be that a text book or sets of folders of work in progress but with the emphasis on students moving from study periods and locations throughout the day, the opportunities to reduce this comes with online learning. Being able to log on to the subject on one iPad or tablet and call up the same content that would be available from a heavy book is ideal way to lessen the load and really stimulates youngsters into grasping the subject far more than word on paper in a book.
