South Korea to Replace All Paper Textbooks With Digital Content

While the US continues to pour money into failed initiatives like NCLB and Common Core Standards, South Korean schools will soon ditch textbooks and move entirely to tablets.  A country can do this when it has ubiquitous wireless, the world's fastest Internet access, and the most most tech-savvy citizens in the world....and when it wants to train creative and innovative students who can compete in an age of globalization. As Dr. Yong Zhao has said, “What China (insert South Korea instead of China) wants is what America wants to throw away.”
