Akbar Ali... you must be a teacher who does not like technology, feel threatened by it AND YOU'VE GOT EVERYTHING WRONG. It is BOOKS to be replaced by laptop.

There is no right answer whether to use only books or only laptops. Everyone learns differently, so tossing books would help one group of students while hindering another. The question "Should laptops replace textbooks?" is simplistic.

There is no doubt that technology has a solid place at the desk of today's students, but there are a lot of factors to consider: subject, topic, objectives and how each individual student learns, grade level, and so on. The list is long. I've seen how interactive multimedia inspires students (in fact, it is awesome - I'm a true believer), but also have witnessed the pride of a young student who has magically transformed a white sheet of paper into a colorful masterpiece.

How best can laptops best be integrated along with other media/methods to enhance student learning is the real question? Not one or the other!

Repetitive Strain Injuries have not been sufficiently tested for laptops in general let alone in schools.

Akbar Ali, your consideration is not fully explaining what you mean by replacing teachers!
You say they replace them- laptops arent replacing teachers in anyway! teachers would still be teaching, but there would be less stress with grading papers.
