The Future of Printing in Schools

Posted by James Tooley on May 15, 2019 12:00:00 PM

I asked my son, who is in Grade 9, which medium at school he prefers to read and study from.  Without hesitation he said a book or on paper.  His first reason was clear, he feels less distracted when reading from a book, while an e-book or screen always remains a temptation.  

The accessibility to games and social media is real and one can’t help but be distracted even if on some subconscious level.  His second reason was less clear, but in summary, he prefers the hands-on physical side of turning pages and having ease of reference when using a book to study.

Beware the Printer Cartridge, for It's Cost Is in the Page It Prints!!

Posted by James Tooley on Jul 31, 2017 9:38:41 AM

There’s a polite yet onerous four letter word that plagues many a printer owner and it’s probably more often than not followed by a less polite one. The word is COST.

A business must run efficiently, and unfortunately in most cases you can’t help but guiltily slay another tree with your axe, contributing to a warmer globe by needing to print that purchase order, account form, client proposal and hopefully many an invoice!  So you authorise a printer cartridge invoice with a hint of reluctance.
