Gov. Schwarzenegger terminates textbooks

This article really highlights the wide range of issues that the ever emerging area of learning-technology faces.

Toronto Star, Saturday June 14th:
Gov. Schwarzenegger terminates textbooks
But critics say his cost- cutting shift to digital classrooms is premature

I'm highly skeptical that this transition will be seamless; I imagine it will be anything but. It's really important for some infrastructure and decision-making to occur before this kind of huge transition of this nature. But, there is one point that I agree with in the article: that just like Kennedy's goal of reaching the moon, this will definitely be a catalyst for change and achieving innovations.
