This looks pretty cool! Korea has been developing a digital textbook that will replace traditional paper textbooks. This new technology, which has already been piloted with several hundred elementary students, will allow students to have access to the most up-to-date content, in an electronic, interactive format.
Some of the really cool features:
- "Students will be able to interact with teachers regardless of time and space and study according to their ability through computers as the nation plans to adopt the digital textbook."
- "... this new form of medium that provides the multi-functionality of textbook, workbook, exercise book and dictionary"
- "It can go beyond conventional paper textbooks by using such features as video clips, animation and virtual reality."
- "The digital textbook contents will be updated whenever needed. The textbook will also allow network connection to databases of organizations in society, enabling students to use much more information than just textbooks."
