South Korea To Move All Students To Tablets And E-books

South Korea, the world’s most wired nation, has announced that it expects to replace all paper textbooks with electronic tablets at its state-run schools by 2015.

Ever since the Kindle e-reader hopped onto the scene in 2007, the dream of completely digitalizing all educational material and cramming it into a slim and light device slowly became feasible, albeit at turtle speeds.

Is The Kindle Going Touch Screen?

The new Trend is touch screen, but many people love the easy accessible Kindle. Its so easy on the eyes and it is the first pick for people who do not favor touch screens and want a simple device for just reading. The Kindle is so easily accessible that a 12-year-old or even an 80-year-old can use it.

E-reader sales have jumped dramatically over the past couple of years, going from 900,000 in 2009 to an estimated 18 million that will be sold this year. Also, we’ve got Apple who has sold over 100 million books for the iPad since the opening of the iBookstore last April.

Andy Rooney Has Not Gotten The Memo on eBooks

Andy Rooney from 60 Minutes does not understand why eBooks will replace paper books. In fact, he seems surprised at the notion that one might even consider buying them. Perhaps he just loves seeing a wall full of hard cover books in his plush office, perhaps he likes carrying a bag full of heavy paper books around if he is reading several. Perhaps he has stocks on a paper company — who knows!!


The point is, eBooks are definitely doing allot better than their paper counterpart (according to Amazon) – partly because they are easier to carry around, they cost much less and allows more people to consider them. They also allow regular people to publish their own stuff removing the bureaucracy of big publishing houses. Oh and did I mention that distribution is more effective and efficient — no shipping or printing cost, and easier to track.
