She likes that she has a bit more control over pace and it is allowing me to step back a little more.

We have them (laptops and tablets) to use when needed, but no - we do not use them exclusively, or even most of the time. We still prefer paper.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

I don't think I could ever go paperless. I have to be able to spread things out in front of me instead of clicking on different windows back and forth. It drives me crazy having to go from app to app, website, calculator, etc when doing bills on my iPad. There is too much research involved and reading in "school work" and it would be frustrating.

To supplement the material, yes.  As the only thing, never.  There is way too much hands on learning that can be done.  I don't want my kid in front of a computer all day, even if it is for educational purposes.  I think computers are a great resource, but they aren't the be all, end all of education.

You could use it as a resource, sure.  Especially if your child is a visual learner the power point slides would be a great tool to help her.

DD does most of her work on paper, but does a good bit of research online, and she writes her essays and papers on the laptop.We also use the computer for supplementation to her regular classwork.
