        Nowadays, using the
electronic textbooks have already been a controversial topic in the society.   I
had divided the stakeholders into four different aspects, they are the government,
environmental organization, school and parents.

            Firstly, for the government aspect,
using the original textbooks, paper wasting is the most serious problem at all
as it will cause the global warming. Also, the prime cost of using the
electronic textbooks is lower that the original one as the suppliers need to
copy the materials over and over. Lastly, the electronic textbooks are easy to
prepare because the students maybe hard to buy the new textbooks at the
beginning of the school day, that will make them cannot overtake the lessons or
they will need to share with their schoolmates and it will be totally
inconvenient. But on the other hand, the government may need to provide
financial aid for the grass – roots unit.

            Second, for the environmental
organization, no doubt, it will be much environmentally – friendly that it can
protect the forest in order to increase the habitat for the animals. A organization
has argue that polar bears today are thinner and less healthy than those of 20
years ago and marmots end their hibernations about three weeks earlier now
compared to 30 years ago. (Live Science, 2005) Just because of the global
warming, it let the weather change a lot, increasing the carbon dioxide and
decreasing the oxygen.

            Third, for the teachers aspect,
teachers may agree to use the electronic textbooks in step of the original
textbooks. The is because the teachers can update and download the information
easily, for instance, they can update the school materials when they can at
home, not to work at school necessary. Besides, it should be more interactive
with the students as they can insert the sound, videos and pictures in the
electronic textbooks. ( Remez Sasson, n.d. ) And for the students, this is
because they will always be in touch with the electronic materials, that will
cause the percentage of having the nearsighted will be increasing. Finally, if
the students bring lots of printed book back to school, it will affect their
vertebra, for instance an e- book called On Global Citizenship, written by
James Tully. The total number of this e – book is 369 pages. If students bring
this kind of thick book, not only one, they may not support. The screen does
not have the same type of resolution like print on paper has. ( jar, 2010)

            Lastly, for the parents aspect,
E-book reading devices are surely more expensive than printed books. All
devices of e-books require power that’s
why parents may need to pay high fee for buying materials and some of the
students may cannot afford the maintenance. Moreover, parents may worry about
their children studying. Will their children be over addiction? Do the children
know how to write all the words as they will rely on the computer and just type
the words out. Furthermore, using the electronic textbooks need to be backup
since if the e-books lost, all the folders will not be found. (MCLAREN, 2008)

sum up, using the electronic textbooks still having many problems that we need
to concern, the advantages and disadvantages we still need to think twice
before action as we need to think of different aspects for that we had used the
original textbooks from beginning to the end, we ought to spend more time to
