School experiments with electronic books

From next week, a class of 27 pupils at the Bonnefanten College in Maastricht will use an electronic book, or Iliad, in their Dutch and history classes. It’s the country’s first experiment in replacing traditional books with the A5 screens.


Publisher ThiemeMeulenhoff has adapted its text books for the new system and expects more schools to follow suit from September.
