School have lacked the hardware needed to deliver textbooks digitally. With the increasing amount of technology in the classroom – the shift from physical to digital textbook couldn’t come at a better time.

McGraw-Hill’s new format, CINCH, is a cloud-based curriculum for K-12 math and 7-12 science. It makes all course materials, which include ebooks, presentations, assessments and animation clips, available from any device with a browser. Students in a class can also participate in Facebook-like conversations that stay with the text. “We’re trying to meet students and teachers where they’re at digitally,” Stansell says.

McGraw-Hill will also be launching a new payment model with CINCH: schools will be charged for each student to use the textbooks on a yearly basis. It comes out to about the cost of a workbook for each student.

I don’t know about your kids, but my children gravitate towards computer learning.

How Soon Do You Think The Switch From Physical Textbook to Digital Textbook Will Take?
