DALTON, WHITFIELD COUNTY (Times Free Press) - A school without books. That is the concept of Coahulla Creek High School and what likely will become the norm in schools in a few years, Principal Phillip Brown told school board members.
"It is getting to the point where everything is going to be digital," Brown said Monday evening, in the last school board meeting before the new high school opens Aug. 10.
Each of the about 700 students attending Coahulla Creek will be given a new Android tablet that will be used to download original source documents, videos and other information from the Internet, Brown said.
Teachers will use that material to teach classes and assign homework.
