There is a lot of debate online and in parent and educator circles on the topic of eBook vs. paper book. With screen time on the rise, what do you think about a transition to eBooks for learners? Should eBook time be limited? What are the benefits of eBooks and why should we incorporate them into classrooms?
I am also a massive fan of having books on shelves, but agree that there’s no arguing with the benefits of eBooks!
eBooks make reading accessible in the best ways possible- for learners with SEN and those who do not have shelves of books in their houses.
The cost of eBooks can be close to that of print books, but with Reading Hub books are always free for learners to access at home, and cost per eBook works out at about 25p per book for schools, which still amazes me every time I type/say it!
