Ebooks might help if you can get the right textbooks and anthologies. Kinda unlikely, though, given how greedy the textbook companies are.
Most of the time when people say "educational resources," they're about to try selling you a bill of useless technology. Its like, "Ok, so we're going to mount this giant projector screen, which doubles as a drawing tablet, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BLACKBOARD where it'll block most of it. Oh, and while you technically can use board markers on it.... we'll fire you if you do. And we're going to give you a huge box full of these little clickers; you have to use them for checking student comprehension and give less classwork. And to make all that work, here's a Win7 laptop which we expect you to take home and use in place of your home computer. No games allowed, though. We'll fire you if you install them, unlike the students who we really don't care if they're playing games or not. And did we mention the principal has a cell snooper that he uses to listen in on your phone's data packets...?"
