I've got this idea that more has to be done to deregulate the course paths of students. Homework is somewhat necessary in order to re-enforce certain key concepts. You won't master math without repeating math problems over and over. But we're living in a digital age. A student could potentially have one publicly-provided tablet computer operating with a school-board OS through which they could access any educational content.

Teachers could be consigned to upload MooC's to the school-board cloud. All textbooks could just be available for free download. Students could upload homework into a cloud-based analysis system where teachers can get bonus bucks for editing, critiquing even evaluating the student's home-work. Entire digital curriculum filled with tests and assignments could be pursued by the student, and the role of teachers in classes could become to guide students and keep them focused on their self-determined paths.

The student should have all the powers of a library and a university in their hands and should be encouraged to explore that to it's fullest in every class.

It's brilliant idea for making the students independent but as per human ideology the brain must be trained to achieve success and be creative. look at the great scholars of different parts of the world. Do even know the behind scene of thier lives. they struggle and spent most of thier time reading,thinking and creating new ideas or methods that could change the world.

I would agree to the idea of making students more independent in pursuing academic success. Therefore, I would say it's fine for students to request homework but not be forcefully shoved with them.

This goes hand in hand with ideas like time management and effective studying. At times, students who recognise their weak points or have a set study guide that they follow will not be able to accomplish their goals. This is basically saying that homework targeted to everyone may not necessarily be the best thing.
