Thanks to Darren for a link to this article about the paperless school.
I have noticed that my own students respond similarly. I have used the Internet Classroom Assistant provided at nicenet.org for a number of years. This allows my students to post homework to the website rather than turning in a paper copyAfter they turn in their homework there,I read it and either grade it or send them a message (built in to the system) telling them what corrections or changes need to be made. I love having less paperwork in my life, and my students appreciate it, too.
