A small high school in suburban St. Louis is tossing aside textbooks in favor of digital tablets.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Grandview High School in Jefferson County will use Android-powered Coby Kyros tablets in place of textbooks this year. Students will be allowed to take the tablets home. They'll be used to take tests, do homework and complete assigned readings.
