    How Going Digital Could Save Time And Money For Schools

    Resistant to switch to digital documents? The cost for your school is higher than you think. Talk to any teacher, and they’ll soon mention one thing: time. A teacher’s job is challenging, and there is not enough time for all of the job’s responsibilities.

    Pursue a Paperless Classroom This School Year

    Some things that happen in education are really stupid. Sometimes the smartest people with the best of intentions can champion and implement ideas that are nonsensical, unhelpful, and really frustrating. It happens all the time.
