South Korea Says Good-Bye To Print Textbooks, Plans To Digitize Entire Curriculum By 2015

On October 26, 2011 by stratagem

Like a band of summer vacation-crazed high school students, South Korea is tossing their textbooks into the great bonfire of “No More Pencils, No More Books…!” No, they’re not entering an indefinite period of state-organized hooky, they are doing away with those burdensome textbooks and digitizing their entire curriculum. In an effort to enable education through technology while bringing down costs, all materials are expected to be digitized by 2015. When the effort is complete, students will be able to learn when and where they want.
