Cecilia Sun – Outdated textbooks

The start of a new school year and the debate over the textbook situation continues. Do we buy e-books? Where will we find the money to replace old and outdated books? Textbooks are given much value in the classroom. It is an indispensable learning resource. Where do we see textbook in the classroom of the future? Do they have a place there? We feel the shift coming as printed text becomes less relevant. Will textbooks become obsolete soon?

I teach high school math/science. This is my fourth course in the program. I look forward to the coming term and sharing ideas with everyone.

    Hi Celia,
    Great point raised here about texts – I see stacks of textbooks around our school and here about how they need to ‘get rid of them’ or ‘doing something with them’. What to do with texts that are outdated in terms of content, and what to do with texts that are increasingly outdated in terms of format. If anyone knows of a plan for old texts, I’d love to know about it!
