A Canadian study reveals that publishers still derive very little revenue from digital resources and, as a result, find it essential to continue efforts to publish print resources. They are considering rethinking their business model since the declination of the product in a digital version projected in front of the students could eliminate the need for sets of resources for the class.

How is it happening elsewhere in the world? A recent study reveals that in France, 16 % teachers use a digital manual. More than nine out of 10 teachers project digital content in the classroom. The paper manual remains privileged for studying texts, carrying out exercises or making an evaluation. The digital medium is however preferred for the study of images, photos, maps and diagrams.

In South Korea, all schools will be without paper by 2015 and many students have already swapped their textbooks for tablets

In Africa, the Worldreader project aims to fight illiteracy by providing students with digital e-readers filled with digital textbooks.

These are just a few examples, digital textbooks are gradually making their way around the world.

Even if we were already talking about it in 2000, it is today that the landscape begins to transform. The free textbooks are also beginning to emerge. What do publishers have in store for the teachers of tomorrow?
