I've been using my tablet for years teaching in a high school. Now I moved to another school teaching middle school. I spoke to the principal and he said there's no problem in using a tablet as long as it doesn't have a SIM card or any distracting apps (social networks, chatting, etc.). After the first week of school, they are telling me that "students don't accept this tablet in class" and they consider it "no different from a cellphone". I explained to them that all my books and courses are on it and it isn't easy to print all of them and that, after a little time, students won't notice it anymore. I also explained to the students that this tablet contains their course and exercises and that I only use it as a reader but that didn't help much.
So, is it normal to ban a tablet in school? If so, it seems I only have two choices: either print all the courses or stop working at this school. What should I do about it?
