A new technological advancement in reading is available to students in schools and should be taken advantage of. Using tablets instead of textbooks would be very efficient and would create a modern method of learning.

Tablets can help students prepare for the technology-based world that we live in today; learning technology skills early in life can help prepare for careers later in life. High-level education supports the use of tablets over textbooks because they could save money on books and ensure that the classrooms in the United States are up-to-date with information.

Furthermore, tablets can reduce the use of paper — that would save money for schools and help save the environment from excessive use of paper and ink. Tablets are innovative and would have many benefits for students and schools.
