The Rise of the All-Digital Classroom


Several companies are set to release school curriculums designed entirely on digital platforms for tablets, replacing all printed materials such as textbooks and worksheets. The release of these hi-tech programs coincides with President Obama’s pledge to provide high-speed Internet connections to 15,000 schools over the next two years, and $400 million in corporate commitments from the software companies Adobe and Prezi, to provide software to teachers.

Education companies such as Amplify, McGraw Hill and Scholastic are among the first to invest heavily in this push towards an all-digital classroom. Each company is releasing an all-digital English language arts curriculum for middle school.
