Backpack Dangers and Possibilities
Children are especially vulnerable to curving of the back due to excessive weight from books and electronics.
Scoliosis is common among young girls and some boys so removing the stresses is of utmost importance.
Isn't it about time for education administrators to move to electronic formats in their books?
Isn't it about time for publishers to consider the cost savings in printing "Kindle" style text books instead of paper-based books?
Offering Pads that come in I-Pad or Tab 3 configurations gives many possibilities to teachers, parents and students.
Schools would be transmitting a safe Wi-Fi signal so these students can interact, share and download products suggested by the teachers and sold by school bookstores at reduced rates.
The bookstores would no longer needto order, inventory, sell and resell physical books.
When the student is done with their E-Textbook, it simply goes away or stays on their pad if they desire to keep it.
The thought of saving paper by not printing and selling textbooks via e-formats will save more than just trees, it will save the backs of our children.
It will save these young backs when they are most vulnerable, pliable and under-developed.
A backpack that includes a tablet loaded with all of the necessary e-textbooks and no heavy paper based textbooks would weigh far less than the 5 to 7 books a student typically carries.
With a stylus or finger, you can write in your e-textbook.
The e-textbook can be controlled like Amazon's Kindle format is and transfer to any device when a student logs-in.
