  1. This is a good program. It is nice that you discussed going paperless in classrooms. It is a lot convenient for the teachers and the students. You can even use some document scanning services to digitize your books and paper materials as well.

  3. I agree with the comments. Going paperless in the classroom makes it easier for the teachers and students to communicate with each other and discuss the lessons. They can even focus more on particular topics using their electronic devices. anti spam service

  4. A paperless classroom would require each student and each teacher to have their own online document storage in order for them to have a place to organize their academic-related documents such as e-books and homeworks. Putting it online would make it easier for them to share it to others.
