Essa Academy: Bookless school where everyone has iPad

A school in Bolton is pushing the boundaries of education by putting away pens and paper and giving all pupils and teachers their own iPad.

The Essa Academy says it helps students and has cut costs, including reducing the school's £80,000 photocopying bill to just £15,000 a year.
