That's provided you can get a 0 print environment.

What worries me about paperless is that many seem to make it the focus of 1:1.  There are many cases where the digital version is not the best tool.   What I have stated at FHU, as we move ahead with our 1:1, is that if you are using the tools effectively then you will find that you are using paper less.

Funny you ask, I had a vendor reference this to me yesterday.

Vendor said that FCC was calling for no dead tree texts by 2017, haven't gotten that far into the document to find that yet.

But more on point to what you were asking Elizabeth.


"A traditional learning environment, including traditional textbooks, paper, technology and connectivity, costs an 
estimated $3,871 per student per year;
·
Based on a conservative evaluation, a new learning environment today, including digital learning content, devices, 
technology and connectivity, costs an estimated $3,621 per student per year. 
·
Based on a conservative evaluation, a new learning environment in three years, including digital learning content, 
devices, technology and connectivity, costs an estimated $3,811 per student per year."

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
