Would an institution-spanning shift away from paper textbooks be better for students? This infographic seems to think so. Besides taking some weight off your messenger bag and your bookshelves, it claims that digital textbooks are cheaper, more efficient and way more engaging than their bound counterparts. Check out the infographic in its entirety below and let us know if you agree.

While we can't say we agree with the whole thing (Really? Using an iPad makes you less likely to get distracted by Facebook? Not buying it.), there's still plenty of convincing research to show that digital textbooks could transform education for the better.

We know plenty of Unplggd's readers are students, so we want to have you weigh in on this one: Are you buying into digital textbooks, literally or figuratively? Would you like to work from an iPad, or would that serve an an unneeded distraction? Tell us in the comments!
