I ran across the following article, entitled Creating a Paperless Classroom with Edmodo Quizzes and Assignments, in my RSS Feed Reader yesterday and found it quite interesting, considering the number of schools implementing 1-on-1 technology. The author, Kelley Taylor, states:
I teach sixth grade language arts and religion at a Catholic school in Lexington, Kentucky. In the 2011-2012 school year, I piloted a 1:1 classroom using netbooks. The program was so successful that it led to the implementation of a 1:1 iPad program across the entire middle school for 2012-2013.
Within the first month, I found that my classes were completely paperless. This was not really my intent when I began the 1:1 endeavor, but a wonderful bonus. As astonishing as it is to have a “paperless” classroom (especially language arts), being in a 1:1 environment has provided me with so many more benefits
