    11. 11. Final Thoughts on Digital Textbooks  I am not sure if I agree with digital textbooks or not. In the long run they do see that they would be cheaper than actual text books. I feel that students should be able to read from a text book, than reading from a screen.  I would rather read a book, than read something from a computer or another screen.  Conclusion
    12. 12. Conclusion  Technology is a great thing in education if it used properly. Children these days are very smart. They know how to work their way around computers. If there is going to be access to the internet in schools, there should be certain websites that are blocked.  Teachers should you technology as a tool in their classroom. Students need different ways of learning. They will learn best if the technology is used the right way.  References
