Tuesday, August 28, 2012 E-textbooks might fully replace paper ones
Electronic textbooks are soon to replace paperback books, believes Isaac Calina, the head of Moscow City Department of Education. First it must be proven, however, that those gadgets are completely safe for pupils’ health.

"When psychologists, physiologists, medics, and Rospotrebnadzor (Federal service on customers' rights protection and human well-being surveillance) tell us that little children can look onto this screen all day long without any harm to their health, then, I will believe, the textbooks will “die”, said Mr. Kalina.

"I can feel computer technologies develop so rapidly that I hope to still be alive to see this", – added the Moscow official at a press-conference held at Interfax.

Many Moscow schools are implementing another technical advancement – electronic class registers. The city’s Department of Education predicts this novelty to be in use in every Moscow school by the end of this year. Some schools, however, still keep regular class registers along with electronic ones.
