Patty in the News

What is your opinion about using digital textbooks for learning? What are their advantages and disadvantages over the printed textbooks?” were the questions U.S. Sen. Patty Murray posed to Naselle junior Austin Smith and freshman Grace Zimmerman Thursday, June 9 during a teleconference with Western Washington students from four high schools.

“It can be difficult to find your place in a digital textbook if you have forgotten to bookmark where you are, especially if the book is 600 pages long,” Smith answered. “Sometimes the lighting can be a problem, but having everything on an iPad and not having to carry around a lot of books is an advantage.”
