Independent schools in Qatar told to switch to e-textbooks

Qatar’s Supreme Education Council (SEC) has instructed Independent schools in the country to use e-textbooks available in the e-bag package, the Peninsula has reported. The regulator also asked the schools to stop using regular textbooks and said students should bring exercise books for each subject, if needed, for activities or home work. The e-bag project, an extension of the e-learning project launched last year, aims at providing every student and teacher at Independent schools with a computer, educational aids and applications that conform to national curriculum standards.
