My old high school started integrating the use of tablets for incoming 9th graders a few years ago, and would be used for the rest of their high school life. These tablets are where they'd get their books, homework, seatwork, sources, and a lot more. I used to see them going around with lighter backpacks, but I don't envy them. I've heard some of my friends complain how, the updating of the software takes too long, the keyboard is too small, etc.
There are numerous advantages to the use of a tablet instead of a textbook in school and with advantages, there ware also disadvantages. There are also reasons why it's better to use a textbook and why it's not. Here are some pros and cons to those:
