South Korea to Replace Textbooks With Tablets

July 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

Countries have been slow to jump on the digital textbook bandwagon, but one country hopes to lead the way in the 21st century classroom. Web-magazine Engadget reports that South Korea plans to replace textbooks with tablets by 2015. Here’s the scoop: 

South Korea announced this week that it plans to spend over $2 billion developing digital textbooks, replacing paper in all of its schools by 2015. Students would access paper-free learning materials from a cloud-based system, supplementing traditional content with multimedia on school-supplied tablets. The system would also enable homebound students to catch up on work remotely — they won’t be practicing taekwondo on a virtual mat, but could participate in math or reading lessons while away from school, for example.

What do you feel about this complete digital transformation?
