Textbooks or tech-book debate heats up in Waynesboro, Pa.

A debate over textbooks vs. technology got heated in Waynesboro, Pa., the The Herald-Mail reported. The school board is closely approaching the deadline to order books, and a debate over the merits of tablet and computer-based learning nearly shut down the meeting. Some members value technology-based learning, while others are reluctant to invest in equipment when there is little empirical evidence to support the notion that tablets and computers improve student learning.
