Duncan sees traditional textbooks becoming obsolete - courtesy of ASC Smart Brief


Education Secretary Arne Duncan declared Tuesday that traditional textbooks should become obsolete in the "next few years" and that schools should shift to digital textbooks. Advocates say that digital textbooks are less costly and give students better access to up-to-date resources. Douglas Levin, executive director of the State Educational Technology Directors Association, says Common Core State Standards could make the process easier for states to collaborate to make the transition without individually having to "reinvent the wheel."
