    • Responses to Questions Print Material Versus E-books: Printed material is accessible without the Internet. E- books require an e-book reader or a computer to use. Every student cannot afford an e-reader or a computer. This means that all pupils may not be able to get the needed information. Also, e-books require an Internet connection. A high-speed connection is better. Depending on where students live, they may not be able to obtain the Internet at all. Some students may not be able to afford that either. The omission of printed materials is not feasible. Even though today’s society has become quite technological, every child will not be able to experience e- books. Money plays a huge role in this and every family cannot afford the Internet connection price nor the price of a computer or e-reader. Online Sources (Power Point): Refer to this Power Point
