As the month comes to an end, so does my mini series on assistive tools and practices to help reduce paper consumption in your learning spaces.
The last tip is one to help you determine "when should I use paper..."
The truth is there is no one right answer for knowing when to use paper or not to, rather, a method of asking yourself before you make copies: "Can I provide this digitally? Will something be lost in the process of going digital? Will something be gained?"
Your walls should ,of course, be filled with your learners creations, so print off their final copies, post their artwork, create fun idea walls.
The key is to reduce what you use a little more each time you go to use paper resources to help the environment, yourself and your budgets.
