Former teacher of the year throws the book at tech in classrooms

Reports have been sounding the death knell of paper books for years now and yet even members of Generation Z--those are the ones coming up behind millennials--who probably don’t remember a time when a book for school didn’t also have a digital component, seem to still have some attachment to the printed page. There’s some research to back that up as well, both scientific and anecdotal.

Guests:

Rebecca Mieliwocki, California Teacher of the Year for 2012 and National Teacher of the Year for 2012; she’s a seventh-grade English teacher at Luther Burbank Middle School in Burbank

Naomi Baron, a professor of linguistics at American University and author of “Words Onscreen: The Fate of Reading in a Digital World”
