South Korea Digitalises Its Entire Curriculum

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 13, 2012 -- Most teenagers from all over the world are tech-friendly nowadays and the majority of classrooms in schools have become digital, but South Korea aims to go one step further and completely digitalise its entire curriculum.

The sovereign state, which already has one of the world's highest-rated education systems, will be switching all its reading books in schools to digital textbooks over the next four years.

South Korea reportedly has the goal that by 2015 all curriculum materials will be available through computers in digital form. All the information, facts and figures that would have once been in paper format will eventually be delivered on screen.

The state's Education, Science and Technology department will launch the "Smart Education" project during the summer; this will involve wireless networks being installed in all schools, as well as an education information system that will run on devices such as tablets, laptops and PCs.

It is hoped that the transfer from traditional paper textbooks to digital textbooks will allow students to leave behind heavy backpacks and explore the world beyond the classroom.

The country is placed in the top five in the global rankings for reading, maths and science. And the Organisation for Economic Co-ordination and Development (OECD) recently reported that teenagers in South Korea were the most competent users of digital technologies. America is also starting to increase its resources for digital learning.
