Once again it's that time when the kiddos are heading back to school. While school supply lists are no doubt extensive, it's interesting to compare today's requirements to just a few years ago. Students today, whether primary, secondary or college level, are expected to be decked out with more electronic gadgets that ever before. Heavy books? You may find some, but more and more are moving to digital copies on tablets and e-readers. No doubt, their backs will thank them. Taking notes? The need for paper and pen continues to dwindle. Notes are now taken on laptops, via virtual keyboards or with smart pens.
