Computers will replace books say pupils

Some 80% of primary school pupils think they learn faster using a computer than a book, according to research for KPN.

Asked about the school of the future, half of the 10 to 12 year-olds polled said computers would replace traditional lessons and that books would disappear from the classroom.
And 99% said their teacher would remain their most important point of contact.
