Digital Textbook program in Korea
Several years ago the Korean government embarked on a digital textbook research project to determine effective ways to digitize school textbooks and utilize the textbooks in the classroom. The project is now in its second phase with 20 pilot schools in operation for a total of 2,637 students in 81 classes using digital textbooks. To learn more about the project, a presentation and paper can be viewed on the UNESCO Bangkok website.
