Ms. Turner, an eighth grade History teacher, assigns students a research paper on Cuba and communism. She asks the students to use only paper media for their research materials. Her students argue, “Why should we waste time using books to find information, when we can just look it up on the Web quickly?” Angry parents also question why the students should have to use only books for research when they have been given laptops by the school.
