Indianapolis Public Schools Replace Textbooks with Digital Content (THE Journal)

I'm not sure digital textbooks is the right word for this; the amount and type of material is too broad.

Quote:
In a pilot program announced at FETC 2010 in Orlando, 12 schools in the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) system will replace traditional textbooks with digital content from Discovery Education. The program also includes curriculum alignment services, professional development, and hardware.

The company's curriculum alignment team analyzed the IPS district pacing guides and chose the digital content that it determined was most appropriate for IPS, including audio and video segments, images, articles, games, and interactive resources.

<--- is from Indianapolis. Both my parents retired from IPS. Knowing what I know about that school system, it seems to me like they'd be better off putting their money into renovating some of their rickety old buildings. But what do I know?
