In recent years we have witnessed the entry of digital textbooks to schools around the world and Israel. As with any other digital domain, the digital textbooks are meeting with enthusiasm and great hopes on the one hand and fears and doubts on the other. What is a digital textbook? Is it enough to make printed text appear on the screen? What are the reasons for using digital books? What are the benefits and what are the disadvantages of using digital textbooks in schools? How should digital books be used correctly in the classroom? What is written in the professional literature worldwide and in Israel on the use of digital textbooks? What is the significance of the use of digital books for teacher training? These and other questions will be discussed at the seminar, accompanied by examples of successful attempts of the introducing digital books to schools.
