Some 100 elementary schools across Israel will be using digital schoolbooks this year as part of a new pilot project, the Education Ministry announced this week.

The project, led by Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar, is part of a national program aimed at “adapting the education system to the 21st century,” which has been in place for two years.The schools were selected for the project according to their available technological and pedagogical infrastructure and were provided with Internet, a laptop for each teacher and projectors.

Pupils in the fifth and sixth grades in the participating establishments will use digital textbooks in three subjects: English, math and an elective of the school’s choice. The textbooks are presented in a PDF format which the teachers can update and insert material into.
