Students Fail to Embrace Digital Textbooks

Students Fail to Embrace Digital Textbooks | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

American students have yet to embrace digital textbooks in considerable numbers. Many of the top universities and colleges have a very slim minority that either use them exclusively or in parallel with print. A recent survey by Hewlett Packard illiminates the role digital is playing in the classroom.

The college textbook bubble and how the “open educational resources” movement is going up against the textbook cartel | AEIdeas

The college textbook bubble and how the “open educational resources” movement is going up against the textbook cartel | AEIdeas | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
The public policy blog of the American Enterprise Institute

The chart above shows the percent changes since 1978 for the CPI series “Educational Books and Supplies” (which is mostly college textbooks), the CPI series “Medical Services,” the median price for new homes from the Census Bureau, and the CPI series “All Items.”  The 812% increase in the price of college textbooks since 1978 makes the run-up in house prices and housing bubble (and subsequent crash) in the 2000s seem rather inconsequential, and  the nine-fold increase in textbook prices also dwarfs the increase in the cost of medical services over the last three decades.  Compared to the 250% increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) over the last 34 years, college textbooks have risen more than three times the amount of the average increase for all goods and services.

Miriam Schcolnik's curator insight, September 21, 2013 3:59 AM

The author's main argument is actually about validity, even though the word is not used. Teach need to match the teaching method (and not just content) so as to be valid. I think a better title for this article would be "Computers can't replace schoolbooks IN HONG KONG YET".
