South Korea Commits to Digital Learning Media by 2015

| July 3, 2011 | Reply


South Korea announced plans this week to spend over $2B to eliminate paper textbooks in schools, replacing them with digital, by 2015. The plan includes a cloud-based system to house learning materials that students would be able to access from school or home. Each child will be issued a school-supplied tablet and would be able to keep up with work and lessons if homebound for any reason.

I’m leery of e-readers, I do admit. And you all know I’m not a huge tablet fan, so I’m not sure what I think of this idea…Any thoughts?
