South Korea plans to convert all textbooks to digital, swap backpacks for tablets by 2015

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.

            It’s nice to see that a country like South Korea is utilising technology and moving upward in the development scale. I wonder when countries with immense potential like India would bring in technologies like this. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
