cmt1 DigitalContent vs textbooks http://bit.ly/7X2f8w
So then I said this:
Indianapolis Public Schools Replace Textbooks with Digital Content http://ilnk.me/1577 | Precisely the opprtnty for #Xerox+espresso & #MPS.Looking a bit more, I got to this:
Did you know that Discovery Communications LLC. has replaced textbooks in Indianapolis http://ilnk.me/1577and then this:
A cable channel replaces textbooks in Indianopolis http://ilnk.me/1578 Discovery Edu is a subsidiary of Discover Communications, LLC.
The point for print
If you ask any classroom teacher they will tell you that the idea of replacing print with online is a figment of some politician's imagination. Sounds good, but it will not scale at least for a long time
Discovery Communications LLC has taken their long tail of content, focused on making money from education, not donating to education.
Consider the long tail at PBS or NPR or Nat Geo or the Then consider the long tail at every serious newspaper in the States. Put that together with Xerox + Espresso or with any MFP that can seemlessly transfer XML to print streams.
Then think about what it would mean to add personalized QR and shortened URLs: Information exchange data from teaching with no teacher time needed.
I'll leave the rest to your imagination.
