Tired of paper? Going paperless blog series

512px-Bob_Braden_in_1996The predicted paperless office has not yet come to pass. In fact, global consumption of paper doubled from 1980 to 2000. With the advent of tablets, apps and cloud-based tools, however, the goal of a paperless office, or paperless classroom, seems easier to achieve.

This blog series will describe some of the tools you can use to move your work to the digital realm. There are many, many tools available- more than we can possibly describe. In addition, some tools fall under multiple categories. To make this complicated world manageable, we are introducing a series of four blog posts organized from a workflow perspective: Saving & Organizing, Student Assignments, Marking up PDF Documents, Scanning, and Paperless in Practice.

Enjoy the series and we hope you share your ideas and favorite tools in the comments!
