By 2015, South Korea aims to provide and deliver all of its curriculum materials in a digital format rather than through the current traditional method of paper textbooks. This would mean that all students would need to have computers and everything would be delivered on-line. The Minister of Education for South Korea, Ju-Ho Lee, argues “Smart Education will change how we perceive textbooks”. However, implementing this would likely be a complex and costly issue, even for South Korea who are famously advanced in broadband/wireless connectivity. The intention is to equip all schools and colleges with wireless networks so that students can learn wherever they are and will involve not just PCs and laptops but also tablets and interactive TVs. There are obvious advantages as Mr Lee states “The transfer from the traditional paper textbooks to digital textbooks will allow students to leave behind their heavy backpacks and explore the world beyond the classroom.” With the advancement of Kindles, e-books and the huge upsurge in on-line learning, is South Korea’s example a viable option for us to follow?
