This is the future of knowledge for our students. Lead by example. Paper is a dead end. Isn't it time to upgrade?

Fortunately Chris Betcher put his thoughts down in a shared, digital environment, and so we are all able to make use of them. Imagine if he just printing them out, and filed them away.
