Digital learning: Final chapter for textbooks?

Digital learning: Final chapter for textbooks? | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
It's no surprise that students are obsessed with their mobile devices. What may come as a surprise, though, is the fact that these digital devices may someday replace textbooks all together—and it may be sooner than we think!

In this basic, human way, online sharing is awkward. Even broken. And we aim to fix it.

We’d like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships, and your interests. And so begins the Google+ project:
