Canadian School to Teachers: ‘Avoid Printing’
Could the toner and paper shortages brought on by supply chain disruptions fuel the ill-advised push toward digital distribution of educational materials? It’s being pondered at one London, Ontario, school district.
A CBC/Radio-Canada story yesterday noted that the Thames Valley District School Board is seeing a shortage of copier toner, complicating teachers’ ability to provide students with photocopied assignments. This prompted the president of the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario to suggest a “pivot to a digital distribution.”
Students, however, aren’t as enamored with such a move.
"I definitely prefer the paper because it gets more in my brain that way, than just trying to type it out," said one high school junior.
