Future U: The stubborn persistence of textbooks | Ars Technica

As a technology journalist, I spend a lot of time writing about how technology makes life better and will take over our lives or at least radically change the way we do certain things.

So it’s quite refreshing to read something talking up the benefits of the humble book in the face of e-books, tablets, laptops and all the other tech that’s supposedly taking over the classroom.

It’s distracting, it’s tricky to set up, it’s expensive and isn’t always the best way to facilitate learning. I tend to agree with these criticisms of techno learning. I’d have to say that there’s lots of good things to say about tech learning.

Don’t sound the death knell for the humble printed textbook just yet then.
