Secondary schools in Kansas embrace paperless processes

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

The Wichita Collegiate school in Wichita, Kansas, recently revealed a strong initiative to improve education and reduce its environmental impact by going paperless. In order to accomplish this bold maneuver, the school's administration provided every student from grades 5 to 12 with a tablet computer, according to KAKE.

At the start of the 2012-2013 school year, the school implemented an information management solution and replaced all of its textbooks with tablets, loaded with all of the texts that students will need for classes. This development not only helps the school reduce future costs on books and related supplies, but it also can help improve education overall.

According to the news source, implementing document conversion service and going paperless allows teachers to add new elements to their lesson plans or change the way students are learning entirely.

"We're able to take what would have been kind of an old fashioned world geography activity, and change it in lots of different ways," Jamie Kennedy, a teacher at the school told the news source.

Going paperless has various benefits for any organization, from increasing productivity to inspiring increased creativity.
