Replace school textbooks and workbooks with digital texts and start the usage of standardized school tablets or ipads among students
- Ministry of Education of Malaysia
We are currently living in an advance modern world with a variety of digital technologies surrounding us. We are living in a world where computers and smartphones rule our daily life. There're also issues regarding students bringing their tech stuffs to school like mobile phones. What if to say, rather than we confiscate them, we allow them, but not in the usual way. What if we allow standardized school tablets or ipads for study?
These will replace textbooks and workbooks, and they will make the usage of paper to lessen, and thus can save our trees. All study materials can be just downloaded from school portals, textbooks and homeworks alike. And besides, teachers don't have to see crazy dirty handwritings anymore. But of course if we want to accentuate writings, students can still write on their tablets with stylus pens. All homeworks and assignments can be just downloaded from and uploaded to their teachers' emails.
Well, if you're thinking that primary school students still aren't ready for this, (since they still can't take care of their belongings properly), we can start on secondary school students. And if you're worrying about stealings, well, since they're school standardized, every student will have one each, same size same brand, basically the same stuff. So even if they try to steal, it's basically useless since they can't put games in them, and the only websites available school portals and other school-allowed websites.
I think it is high time that we fully embrace modernity and technologies and push our great country towards advancement and better future.
We, the people, call on the Ministry of Education of Malaysia and the Federal Government of Malaysia to implement and replace school textbooks and workbooks with digital texts, and to start the usage of standardized school tablets or ipads among students.
