would be interesting to see a cost comparison between going paperless with a 1:1 Chromebook program and continued use of printing. I wonder how much we are holding back the transformation to digital age learning by supporting/enabling the paper pedagogy.

St Johnsbury School has moved/is moving to a mix of copiers in the workrooms and smaller laser printers in the classroom. The key is helping teachers understand the copiers are much cheaper for the majority f their work, and the classroom lasers are there for convenience in the middle of a class. The lease on new color copiers is less than the old b&w lease. - RickM

Hi - I'm looking at my supplies budget for next year. Yikes. It's large, and it's largely toner for laser printers. (Paper is in another budget.) Ok, we need to reduce printing. But I also want to reduce the price per page. We're using 3rd party toner for all but one of our printers. I could go to self-refill to trim that cost. Anyone doing that?

Or I could try inkjet. HP has inkjets with "page-wide" heads that they say are fast, as good as laser, and less expensive per page. Anyone using those?

How are you reducing your supplies costs?

thanks,
steve
